A woman has been charged with murdering a shopkeeper whose body was found in the boot of his car.

Zatoon Bibi, 36, of Roway Lane, Oldbury, is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court later accused of killing Tanveer Iqbal, West Midlands Police said.

A police spokesman said a 43-year-old man, who was also arrested on suspicion of murder, has been bailed pending further inquiries.

Mr Iqbal, 33, was found dead in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham last week, a day after he was seen closing his music shop in Shireland Road, Smethwick.
