Walsall man Charged with murdering his own grandmother.


We’ve charged a #Walsall man with murdering his own grandmother.

Greg Irvin is accused of stabbing 74-year-old Anne James to death at her home.

It’s alleged the 25-year-old attacked her with a knife at the address in Doveridge Place, #Highgate, sometime between midday and 5pm on Wednesday 28 February.

A post-mortem examination revealed Mrs James died as a result of multiple stab injuries.

Unemployed Irvin − who was arrested the day after Mrs James’ body was discovered − is set to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court tomorrow.

This is a murder that has really shocked the local community and we have been working flat-out on the investigation to find the person responsible.

Clearly bringing this murder charge is a significant step towards securing justice for Mrs James’ many friends and family.
