Case synopsis:

Sheiku Adams, 49, died after falling from a third-floor flat following an aggravated burglary on 25 October 2018.

Police were called at 9.05pm after receiving reports of a break-in at Denyer House, Highgate Road, Dartmouth Park.

Mr Adams was taken to hospital with serious injuries and was pronounced dead at 11.56pm.

On 7 November 2018 Neil Allen, 25 (15.12.92), Nicola Green, 32 (26.09.86) and Stephanie Haughton, 34 (05.05.84), from the Wolverhampton area, were charged with manslaughter. On 16 November Jamie Cohen, 33 (07.12.84), of no fixed address, was charged with manslaughter.

They are due to stand trial on 29 April 2019.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, continue to appeal for witnesses and information.

DCI McHugh, said: “Tragically a man has lost his life in what appears to have started as an aggravated burglary and ended in his death, after he fell from a third floor window.

“It is very early in the investigation, but I believe two men forced their way into the flat armed with at least one knife. This appears to be a targeted attack and there will be people out there who will know who is responsible for the events that led to Sheiku’s death; I need to hear from those people as a matter of urgency.

“We need to understand the circumstances as to how Sheiku came to fall out of the window and we are appealing to any local residents who saw two men loitering around the area before 21.00hrs to come forward.

“We will be working around the clock to piece together the circumstances of this case and bring those responsible to justice.

“What we need now is for witnesses and people with information to do the right thing and contact us as a matter of urgency. Any information, no how matter how insignificant you think it is, will be treated in the strictest confidence and will assist us greatly in this investigation.”

Anyone with information should contact the incident room on 020 8785 8099 or call 101 quoting CAD 7474/25Oct. Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or visiting
