William Davis Murder: Woman Charged With Death Of Decorated War Veteran

A 35-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of a decorated war veteran who was found dead in his home.

William Davis, 92, was found collapsed at his Hobley Street residence in Willenhall, West Midlands, on Sunday evening.

He died as a result of severe head injuries, West Midlands Police said.

The woman will appear before magistrates in Wolverhampton on Saturday morning, a spokeswoman for the force said.

At a press conference held by the force earlier this week, Detective Superintendent Richard Baker described Davis as fiercely independent decorated war veteran who was father to two, grandfather to four and a great-grandfather to one.

The police also appealed for anyone who might have been in the Fisher Street and Hobley Street area on Sunday to come forward.

Anyone with any information relating to the incident is asked to contact West Midlands Police, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
