A man is due to appear in court charged with the murder of a young mother of three who was stabbed to death in a taxi in Birmingham.
Junior Saleem Oakes, 28, is accused of attacking Natasha Trevis in the city's Northfield area on Tuesday morning.
Emergency workers were called to Dimsdale Road, near the junction with Hoggs Lane, at around 8am and found the 22-year-old victim in cardiac arrest after suffering multiple stab wounds.
Ms Trevis, from the Weoley Castle area of the city, was pronounced dead at the scene around 30 minutes later.
Her friend Trevor Titley told the Birmingham Mail: “It’s just shocking, I can’t believe this could happen to her.
“She was the most innocent, happy-go-lucky girl."
Oakes was arrested by police officers who found him in a garden in nearby Allens Farm around 10 hours after the attack.
He was charged by detectives last night and will appear before Birmingham Magistrates' Court later on Thursday morning.
