THE blood of a man who was fatally stabbed in Dudley was discovered in an abandoned car, a court has heard.

The trial into the murder of Jaskaran Kang continued at Birmingham Crown Court, with the prosecution finishing their outline of the case.

Mr Kang, aged 24 from Handsworth, was found fatally stabbed in a flat on Stourbridge Road, Dudley on Saturday January 6 2018.

Joshua Campbell, aged 18 from King Edmond Street, Dudley, has been charged with murder.

Dontay Ellis, aged 19 from Central Drive, Lower Gornal, and James Peake, aged 18, from Southgate Way, Dudley, are also accused of murder.

Reggie Salmon, aged 21 from Stourbridge Road, Dudley, is accused of manslaughter and conspiracy to rob, while Tyrone Johnson, aged 18 from Malthouse Drive, Dudley, has been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

Concluding their outline of the case, the prosecution detailed how DNA and blood samples from Mr Kang were found on the back and the palm of a pair of gloves.

DNA from others who are not the defendants, was also found, he said.

A pair of black trainers were also found, stained with Dontay Ellis' blood.

The court earlier heard how four masked men armed with knives kicked in the door of the first floor flat in Dudley.

During the break in, Mr Kang was stabbed. Despite the best efforts of medics, he was pronounced dead at 2.52am.

The trial, which is expected to last eight weeks, continues.
