Two 12-year-old boys have been charged with murder after a man was stabbed to death in Wolverhampton.

Shawn Seesahai, 19, was killed on Monday evening.

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

Both children, who cannot be named due to their age, have been remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court later today.

Mr Seesahai died after an incident in Laburnum Road in East Park at around 8.30pm on Monday.

In a statement released via West Midlands Police, the teenager's mother said: "Shawn Seesahai was a courageous, compassionate and confident young soul who sadly lost his life at the age of 19.

He "cared deeply about his friends and family" and "absolutely loved to help people", she said.

Mr Seesahai was "looking forward to accomplishing many future plans and ambitions", she added.

"He was a generous person and had a good personality.

"We will always have him in our hearts."

The force said it had increased dedicated patrols in the area following the tragedy.

The two boys were arrested on Tuesday, when DCI Dave Sanders, from the homicide team, said: "Our thoughts remain with Shawn's family, who have been fully updated with this latest development.

"Our investigation is moving at pace and we continue to encourage anyone with information to contact us."

People have been urged not to speculate on social media and to allow detectives to "continue with our investigation to achieve justice for Shawn's family."
