A MAN in his 20s has been charged with the murder of Adrian Locke in Worcester last Wednesday evening (January 2).

Mr Locke, of Wych Road, Droitwich, was found by paramedics with stab wounds outside an address in Teme Road, Tolladine, at around 7.20pm.

Despite their efforts, Mr Locke was confirmed dead at the scene by a doctor a short while later.

Micah Golding, of Cross Farm Road, Harbourne was arrested in Birmingham at around 7pm on Sunday and appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court this morning (Wednesday).

As well as being charged with the murder of Mr Locke, the 21-year-old has also been charged with two counts of conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine from an address on Teme Road in Worcester between December 2012 and January 3 2013.

He will appear at Worcester Crown Court tomorrow (Thursday). The drugs charges allege he conspired with Rafael Marks, aged 20 and of Nooklands Croft, Birmingham.

Marks was charged earlier this week with the same drug offences as well as 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 on Monday (January 7) and was remanded into custody to appear at Worcester Crown Court on April 8.
