A 37-year-old man has been charged with the murders of the parents of a West Midlands police officer.

Carole Kolar, 58, and Avtar Kolar, 62, who had been married for 40 years, were found dead at their home in Handsworth Wood, Birmingham, on 11 January.

Lithuanian national Rimvydas Liorancas will appear before magistrates in Birmingham on Thursday morning.

A 41-year-old man was previously released without charge and a 24-year-old man is on police bail.

Mr and Mrs Kolar were found at the Friary Road property by their police officer son Jason.

Post-mortem examinations revealed both died as a result of blunt-force trauma to the head, each sustaining a number of blows.
