Undated handout file photo issued by West Midlands Police of James Brindley, 26, who was pronounced dead at the scene of a stabbing in Aldridge, near Walsall, as police are appealing for the occupants of four cars, which travelled along Little Aston Road towards Aldridge town centre which they believe at the time of the attack, to come forward.

A youth and a 21-year-old man are to stand trial charged with murdering a budding male model and entrepreneur.

James Brindley, 26, was stabbed once in the heart as he walked home in Aldridge, near Walsall, West Midlands, late on June 23, triggering a major police investigation.

Following an emotional public appeal for information by Mr Brindley’s parents, Aaron Kahrod and a 17-year-old boy were arrested on July 12 and charged with murder two days later.

Paying tribute to their son, Mr Brindley’s parents said he had been about to launch a health and fitness business before he was fatally stabbed in Little Aston Road, near The Croft.

Kahrod, of Walsall Road, Aldridge, and the teenager, will face a trial at Birmingham Crown Court on Tuesday.
