A second person has been charged with murder following the death of a man who was found injured in a car park in Chaddesden.

57-year-old Simon Jones, from Belper, was found in Chaddesden Lane on Saturday night. He was taken to hospital but later died.

A number of people have subsequently been arrested as part of an ongoing murder investigation.

Kirk Guy, of Haydn Road, Derby, was arrested earlier this week in connection with Mr Jones’ death.

The 33-year-old was charged with murder last night and appeared at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court this morning.

He was remanded into prison custody and is due to appear at Derby Crown Court on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Jacob Ali, 19, of Ashworth Avenue, Derby, appeared at court and was charged with murder and robbery.

Thai Johnson, also 19 and of Renfrew Street, Derby, and Zak Stevens, 26, of Crewton Way, Alvaston, have been charged with assisting an offender.

A 23-year-old man who was arrested in Belper on Thursday evening on suspicion of murder remains in custody for questioning. A 21-year-old man arrested at the same time on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released under investigation.
