Police forced entry to the house in Bulkington Road where they found the body of 33-year-old Daniel Pitham from Bedworth.

Two men have been charged with his murder.

Daniel's family paid tribute to him saying: "Danny was a very out outgoing young man who loved to party with his friends, travel, and keep fit. In his younger days he played football at a very high level. Due to his life-changing injuries after an accident in February 2018 he became very withdrawn, depressed and vulnerable.

"He will be sorely missed and very much loved. RIP son."

Scott Warner, 35, of Missing Oak Close, Bedworth, and John Robert Allison, 33, of Bulkington Road, Bedworth, have both been charged with Daniel's murder. They appeared at Warwick Magistrates Court today (Friday 10 May) and were remanded in custody to appear at Warwick Crown Court on Monday (13 May).

Police enquires are ongoing and officers are keen to speak to anyone who had contact with Warner or Allison between 12noon on Saturday (4 May) and 5pm on Wednesday 8 (May).

Detective Chief Inspector Anna Middleton from the Warwickshire Police Major Investigation Unit said: "We'd like to speak to anyone who had any contact with Warner or Allison, no matter how insignificant they think it may have been. The information may be vital to our ongoing investigation."

Anyone with information can call 101 quoting incident 200 of 6 May 2019. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
