Reece Cox (24) was tragically found with head injuries outside a pub in the town centre on Saturday, August 15.

Two men, aged 18 and 22 and who are both from the Dudley area, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and taken into police custody.

A total of five men have been charged so far and all appeared at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court last week.

A fifth man, Tyrone Halliday, aged 24, also from Shadwell Drive, was charged with violent disorder and actual bodily harm.
