A 20-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a teenager who died following a stabbing in Oxford.

Connor Tremble, 17, was injured in Fairacres Road on Thursday evening. He died in hospital on Saturday after his life support machine was switched off.

Post-mortem tests have failed to establish the cause of his death.

William Blencowe, of Oxford Road in Banbury, appeared at Oxford Magistrates' Court earlier.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Oxford Crown Court on Wednesday.

Floral tributes have been left outside Connor Tremble's home.

His mother Lisa, said: "Connor was a much-loved son, big brother, nephew and grandson.

"His death has ripped my heart into pieces and I feel I have been robbed of something priceless."

Police have been searching drains and bins around south Oxford for evidence.

Mr Blencowe was arrested in Stratford-upon-Avon on Friday.

A 21-year-old man from Birmingham, arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, has been released without charge.
