Two teenage boys have been charged with murder after a man was stabbed in a Northamptonshire village.

Stevie Pentelow, 44, of Kettering, died in hospital after he was found wounded in Little Harrowden on Friday.

Tristan Patel, 18, of Newcomen Road, Wellingborough, and a 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named because of his age, will appear at Northampton Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

The teenagers are the third and fourth persons to be charged with murder.

Levar Thomas, 20, of Knox Road, Wellingborough, and Sophie Hughes, 28, of Faraday Court, Thrapston, are in custody ahead of their next court appearance in July.

A 38-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released under investigation.

Little Harrowden is a village of about 900 people, about three miles (4.8km) north of Wellingborough.

Detectives investigating Mr Pentelow's death have continued to urge anyone with information to contact Northamptonshire Police.
