A teenager has appeared in court charged with the murder of a 16-year-old boy who was found stabbed in the street.
Ozell Pemberton was confirmed dead at the scene in Sutton Coldfield after the incident at about 3.30pm on Thursday.
A post-mortem examination said he died from a single stab wound to the chest.
On Monday (21 May), a 17-year-old youth, from Lozells, Birmingham, spoke only to confirm his address, date of birth and nationality during a four-minute hearing at Birmingham Magistrates' Court.
Ozell's parents said in a statement:
On Saturday night, a 21-year-old from Erdington, Birmingham, was arrested on suspicion of murder.
A third man, a 17-year-old from Kingstanding, was arrested on Sunday.
Both remain in custody as the investigation continues.
