Three more people have been charged with murder following the fatal stabbing of a man.

Michael Anton O’Connor was found with knife wounds in Wilford Crescent West, in The Meadows, just before 10.30pm on 10 November.

The 31-year-old victim from Alexandra Park, later died at the Queen’s Medical Centre.

Last night, a further three people were charged with murder in connection with the investigation.

Joseph Boscombe, 39, of Rostherne Avenue, Manchester, Joshua Agboola, 28, of Leven Grove, Darwen, Blackburn and Carla McGuire, 51, of Wilford Crescent West, The Meadows, became the latest suspects to be charged.

All three appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court this morning (27 November) and were remanded into custody and are next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 30 November.

A 37-year-old woman arrested on Wednesday (24 November) on suspicion of assisting an offender has been bailed with conditions.

Six others were charged with murder earlier this week. They include Michael Mingoes, 19, of Powell Street, Manchester; Jerome Sheard, 29, of Wilford Crescent West, The Meadows; Rebecca Bell, 36, of Loughrigg Close, The Meadows; Paula Usherwood, 37, of Central Avenue, Beeston; Michael McGuire, 34, of Wilford Crescent West, The Meadows; and Curtis Sheard, 23, of Wilford Crescent West, The Meadows.

All six were remanded in custody after appearing at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, as was a seventh person – Kerry-Anne Shepherd, 34, of Plantagenet Street, St Ann’s – who is charged with assisting an offender.

Detective Chief Inspector Rob Routledge, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have now charged a further three people with the murder of Michael Anton O’Connor.

“My team is working tirelessly to find all those responsible for Michael’s death and we are showing we will not stop until they are all found and put before the courts.

“We have a group of dedicated detectives pursuing several lines of enquiry and we are continuing to support Michael’s family.

“There has been an increased police presence in The Meadows area since this fatal attack took place and this will continue to help reassure the community.

“Our thoughts remain with Michael’s family at this extremely difficult time and we are doing all we can to get answers for them.”
