Detectives investigating the murder of 19-year-old Shawn Seesahai in Wolverhampton on Monday evening have charged two boys with his murder.

The 12-year-olds were arrested on Tuesday evening and, following a warrant of further detention from the court, they were charged this evening.

The boys have also been charged with possession of a bladed article.

Both boys, who cannot be named due to their age, have been remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court tomorrow (17 Nov).

Police patrols are continuing in East Park to offer reassurance to the public and our thoughts remain with Shawn’s family and friends.

A grieving mother has spoken today of her son’s “courageous, compassionate and confident young soul”.

Shawn Seesahai was stabbed to death in Wolverhampton on Monday evening.

Shawn was with friends on Monday evening at the time of the attack on open land off Laburnum Road, East Park. Sadly he died at the scene.
