Two more teenagers have been arrested in connection with the murder of a man found stabbed in a house in the Black Country.

Father-of-two Simon Johnson was discovered in the house in Cradley Road, Netherton, Dudley, on 11 August.

A post-mortem examination confirmed the 41-year-old died of stab wounds.

A man, 18, and a 15-year-old boy were arrested on Tuesday evening. They have now been bailed, West Midlands Police said.

Two other suspects - also aged 15 and 18 - have both since been released on police bail.

Det Insp Warren Hines appealed for anyone with information to contact the force.
