A fourth person has been charged over the murder of a man whose body was found in a car park near a supermarket.

Suren Sivananthan, 32, from Canada, was found near the Co-op in St Leger Drive in Great Linford, Milton Keynes, at 04:00 GMT on Saturday.

Prashanth Thevarasa, 23, of Farrier Place, Downs Barn, Milton Keynes, has been charged with one count of murder.

Two other men and a teenage boy face the same charge and appeared in court on Tuesday.

Gnanachandran Balachandran, 37, of The Fleet, Springfield, Milton Keynes, Kiroraj Yogarajah, 30, of Dunthorne Way, Grange Farm, Milton Keynes, and a 17-year-old from Croydon - who cannot be identified because of his age - were remanded in custody and will appear at Luton Crown Court tomorrow.

Mr Thevarasa is due to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court later.

Thames Valley Police's response to the death has been referred to the police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

A force spokeswoman said the referral was "to ensure police actions during the initial response to the investigation were appropriate".
