He was charged with two counts of conspiracy to supply class A drugs, heroin and crack cocaine, from 42a Teme Road in Worcester.

He was also charged with an offence of possession of an illegal firearm, which relates to an offence from May 2011 in Birmingham when officers from West Midlands Police recovered a handgun.

He appeared at Worcester Magistrates' Court today and has been remanded into custody to appear at Worcester Crown Court on April 8.

He has been released on police bail for the offence of murder.
