Jamie Benbow, aged 29, suffered fatal stab wounds in Handsworth Wood last Friday.

The incident took place on Washington Drive and nothing could be done to save Jamie's life.

Calvin Mcleod, 37 of Wheatley Avenue, Oldbury was remanded to appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court Thursday.

Two other men who were arrested on suspicion of murder have been released on police bail as enquiries continue.

Jamie’s family have released this tribute: "To our darling Jamie. A much-loved son, brother, uncle and most importantly Dad.

"We can't imagine life without you. Our hearts are broken. Now sleep tight our Angel and get some rest. We all love you so much Jamie, love Mom & Dad, your Brothers and Sister."
