A second brother has been charged with murder after his sibling was stabbed to death in a street in Birmingham.

David Rogers, 32, was detained after his brother Thomas Rogers, 26, was discovered lying in the street at the junction of Bristol Road and Mill Pool Way, in Bournbrook, at 4.55pm last Saturday.
