    ‘Zephaniah McLeod, 27, of Selly Oak, Birmingham, is also accused of the attempted murder of the seven other victims of the knife attacks.

    ‘McLeod will appear before Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday morning.’

    The police statement said a post mortem examination concluded that Mr Billington died as a result of a stab wound to the neck.

    Jacob, 23, died after being attacked in Irving Street while enjoying a night out with school friends from Liverpool visiting one of their group who is studying in Birmingham.

    A post mortem concluded he died as a result of a stab wound to the neck.

    A 23-year-old man, who was seriously injured in Irving Street, remains in hospital in a critical condition. 

    A 22-year-old woman, attacked in Hurst Street, remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital.

    Another man, aged 30, remains in a serious condition in hospital, while four others have been discharged.

    Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro is leading the investigation. He said: ‘Since these tragic events unfolded in the early hours of Sunday morning we’ve had a team of officers working non-stop on the investigation.

    ‘Our driving focus is to secure justice for the victims, their family and friends. Our sympathies remain with everyone who’s been impacted by these terrible crimes.

    ‘Our investigation continues and I would urge any witnesses who’ve not yet spoken to us, or anyone with information they feel could help, to get in touch.’
