POLICE in Worcester have until tomorrow morning to question a second man arrested on suspicion of murdering Adrian Locke.

A second man in his 20s was arrested in Birmingham at around 7pm on Sunday.

Officers yesterday appeared before Worcester magistrates to apply for a custody extension, which was granted, which means the man can be held in custody until tomorrow morning.

Mr Locke, aged 39, of Wych Road, Droitwich, was found by paramedics outside 42a Teme Road, Tolladine, Worcester, on Wednesday and was pronoucned dead a short time later.

A post-mortem examination revealed he died as the result of a stab wound to the torso.

Another man who was arrested on suspicion of murder on Friday has since been released on police bail.
