A man has been charged with murder more than 18 months after the body of another man was found at a flat in Sunderland.

David Wilson, 49, was found dead at an address in the city's Southwick Road just after 11:00 GMT on 14 December.

At the time, police said Mr Wilson had been the victim of a "violent attack".

Daniel Johnson, 20, formerly of Morris Street, Gateshead, has been charged with murder and is due in court on Tuesday, Northumbria Police said.

A 34-year-old man who was earlier arrested on suspicion of murder has been released with no further action.
