A man has been remanded into custody following his appearance at Birmingham Crown Court on the 7th of May charged with the murder of a 41-year-old father in Edgbaston.

Fausto Graciano aged 27 was charged earlier in the day after being brought back into police custody from a secure mental health facility. He has been remanded into custody to next appear on July 23.

A murder investigation was launched following the death of Amarjit Singh Rai on Thursday 2 May, who was found with serious wounds on Gillott Road.

A post-mortem revealed he died as a result of multiple injuries.

The 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene and was transferred to a secure mental health facility after being deemed mentally unfit for questioning.

Amarjit's family have today paid tribute to him and released the following statement: ''Amarjit Singh Rai was a loving son, brother, husband and a devout father; he was a pillar of strength and respect within the community.

"His loss is greater than words can express and the tragic way he has been taken away will leave a lifetime of wounds.

"He was a much respected businessman, who was also very giving to all he met.

"We would also like to thank the public for their support in helping the police enquiries."
