Two more arrests for detectives investigating Killamarsh ‘murder’

Two more arrests have been made by officers investigating the alleged murder of Ricky Collins in Killamarsh.

They have also recovered a silver Vauxhall Astra from an address in Sheffield which was believed to be connected to the case.

A 70-year-old woman and a 15-year-old girl were arrested late last night on suspicion of assisting an offender. They are currently in police custody.

Ricky Collins, from Sheffield, was found seriously injured in Westthorpe Road on Monday 29 March after reportedly being assaulted.

The 31-year-old had suffered stab wounds and sadly later died in hospital. A murder investigation was subsequently launched.

On Tuesday (6 April) officers charged Bradley Ward (24), from the Woodthorpe area of Sheffield, with murder. He appeared at Derby Crown Court earlier today, and is due to appear again later in the year.

Two men aged 43 and 44 have been charged with assisting an offender. A 29-year-old woman and a 16-year-old boy, who were also arrested, have been bailed pending further inquiries.

Detective Inspector Chris Marriott, who is leading the investigation, said: “We’re grateful for the response we have received from members of the public, and would still encourage people to come forward if they have any information.
