Hinckley stab death: Boy, 17, charged with murder
A 17-year-old boy has been charged with murdering a man who was stabbed to death in a Leicestershire street.
Joshua Taylor, 18, died in the early hours of Monday morning in Sword Drive, Hinckley.
He was pronounced dead at the scene and a post-mortem examination found he died of a single stab wound.
The boy, who cannot be named, has been charged with murder and possession of a knife. He is due to appear before magistrates on Wednesday.
Hinckley Academy headteacher Richard Cahill previously said there was "sadness and anger" over the former student's death, and tributes to Mr Taylor have been left at Sword Drive.
Leicestershire Police is appealing for witnesses to come forward.
