Detectives last night (Thursday) charged a man with murder after the discovery of a womanâ€™s body in a burnt out car in Erdington.
Police made the grim discovery on Tuesday evening (22 July) after emergency services were called to the fire on Fentham Road.
A short while later Damian Dinobewei was arrested and he was subsequently charged with murder.
The unemployed 34-year-old, of Pershore Road, will appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court today (Friday 25 July) to answer a charge of murder.
The identity of the deceased is yet to be established and a post mortem examination conducted earlier today proved inconclusive. Further tests will be carried out to determine a cause of death.
Detective Chief Inspector Warren Hines said: “Despite this latest development in the case we continue to investigate.
“The publicâ€™s response to our appeal for information has been encouraging and we have made progress with our enquiries. That said, I continue to urge people with any information which may help to call us.
“I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw the pink Audi in the minutes and hours before it was found alight on Fentham Road.”
Anyone who can help Det Chief Insp Hines should call him on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously onÂ 0800 555 111.
