A man has been charged with the murder of a man found stabbed to death in a shed.

Zafran Nawaz, 34, from the Yardley area of Birmingham, was discovered in a property on Carlton Road on 22 May. He had been missing for one day.

Akbar Khan, 20, of Carlton Road, Bordesley Green is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Saturday, West Midlands Police said.

In a statement, Mr Nawaz's family said he was a "loving son".

"While the circumstances were beyond comprehension, we will choose to remember him for what he meant to us all," the family said.

Three men aged 28, 23 and 24, three women aged 19, 25 and 50 and a 15-year-old boy remain on police bail in connection with Mr Nawaz's death.
