A man has been charged with the murder of mother-of-three Natasha Trevis by stabbing her during a taxi journey in Birmingham.

Mohammed Saleem Junior Oakes, 28, will appear before Birmingham magistrates court charged with killing Trevis, 22, in the Northfield area of the city.

The driver of the cab called police, but Trevis, from the suburban district of Weoley Castle, died at the scene from multiple stab wounds. Oakes was found in the garden of a house in the south of Birmingham following a police search.

Police understand that Oakes and Trevis were in a relationship, and were sharing the taxi.
