A 28-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a man who received a stab wound during riots in Birmingham.

Isaiah Young-Sam, 23, received a wound to his chest during disorder in Lozells on 22 October 2005.

The 28-year-old, who was also charged with a wounding that occurred on the same evening, was due before Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Three men accused of murdering Mr Young-Sam were found not guilty in February.

The three defendants had also denied a charge of wounding with intent and were found not guilty on all charges.

The 28-year-old man was arrested on Friday at Manchester Airport and charged on Saturday with murder.
