Man, 27, charged over murder of woman, 25, stabbed and run over outside her home

A 27-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with murder after the death of a woman in Tamworth.

Officers were called to Bingley Avenue shortly before 1:30am on Friday following reports that a woman had been seriously injured.

The woman, a 25-year-old, was reportedly stabbed repeatedly and then run over outside her home.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services staff, the woman sadly died at the scene.

Jake Notman, of Bingley Avenue, Tamworth, was arrested on suspicion of murder shortly after and has since been charged by detectives.

He has been remanded in police custody ahead of a court appearance.

Police said earlier that a man from Tamworth had been "in hospital receiving treatment".

One witness, a local resident who wished to remain anonymous, said: "After we were all woken up by the blue lights, I saw the man get into an ambulance with cuffs on.

"I couldn't see anything wrong with him."

He said he saw the man's car being taken away this morning.

Another local said: "The whole thing is absolutely appalling.

"The poor girl's body was left on the driveway of the house next door, and I think it is still there covered by a police forensics tent. 

"It's like a bad dream. I was asleep but the sheer amount of blue lights woke me up.

"There were four ambulances, fast response vehicles, loads of police cars, and then the air ambulance.

"Someone was actually meant to be moving into the house where her body was left today. But obviously they can't get in. There is a big cordon up preventing any access to the scene.

"It happened around 50 metres from my door. I can still see forensics officers coming and going, and there is an awful lot of police activity."
