A second teenager has been arrested in connection with the murder of Glynis Bensley.
Ms Bensley was found on Cheshire Street in Smethwick, near Birmingham, just before midnight on Wednesday last week; she was pronounced dead at the scene by medical staff who were called to the incident. A post-mortem found that the 47 year-old had died from a head injury.
The police arrested a 14 year-old boy in Smethwick last Thursday and he has since been released on conditional bail. The police have now arrested a second teenage boy, a 13 year-old, who is currently being detained by police.
A spokesman for the CID, DCI Sam Ridding, said:
“We are still piecing together all of the information we have gathered to determine Glynis’s last movements and what led to her tragic death. Our thoughts remain with Glynis’s family and friends who are devastated by what has happened and specially trained officers are working with them at this time.”
