Dale Grice died after he was stabbed in Cooksey La

A Birmingham man who was stabbed to death in Kingstanding yesterday morning has been named as 32-year-old Dale Grice.

The father of two was pronounced dead at the scene after being found with fatal injuries in Cooksey Lane just before 7am.

His family are overwhelmed with grief after receiving such shocking news. They said: “Dale was very popular and loved by everybody; he didn’t have a bad bone in his body. He had an infectious smile that would light up a room and now he lights up the sky.

“His family and friends are left devastated. He leaves behind his eight and six-year-old daughters, his sisters, his mother, his aunties and uncles and his nan. He will be missed dearly by all that knew him.”

A 37-year-old man arrested from an address in Hamstead shortly after Dale died has now been charged with his murder.

Construction worker Ravinder Heer, from Pimpernell Drive, Walsall, will appear before Birmingham magistrates tomorrow (9 Sept).

Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield from the force’s homicide unit, said: “Our sympathies are with Dale’s family at this desperately sad time. We have specialist officers supporting them after hearing such terrible news.

“Although we have charged a man with Dale’s murder, our investigation continues and we still welcome information about the circumstances of his death.”
