Two men have been charged with the murder of Neil Charles in Bury St Edmunds

Two men have been charged with murder by detectives investigating a fatal stabbing in Bury St Edmunds earlier this year.

At around 3.55am on Sunday 20 June police were called to reports of an incident in Winsford Road, on the Moreton Hall estate.

Upon arrival, officers located a man who had sustained a serious stab wound. He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for treatment where he sadly died two days later, on Tuesday 22 June.

The deceased has been identified as Neil Charles, aged 47, of Bury St Edmunds. A Home Office post-mortem examination concluded that Mr Charles died as a result of a single stab wound to the chest.

Two men, David King, aged 55, and Edward King, aged 18, both of Radnor Close, Bury St Edmunds who were first arrested in connection with this incident on Sunday 20 June and then rearrested yesterday, Monday 11 October, have now both been charged with murder.

They have both been remanded in custody to appear before Ipswich Magistrates’ Court tomorrow, Wednesday 13 October.
