Man to appear in court on murder charge

Police have charged a man with murder following the death of 42-year-old man in North Walsham.

Matthew Constantinou, aged 41, of Antingham Drive, in the town, will appear at Norwich Magistrates’ Court on Monday, October 5, after police were called to Antingham Drive shortly before 11.30pm on Friday night.

Police arrived to find the injured man, who has been provisionally named as Thomas Moore, aged 42, on nearby Bacton Road. He received treatment, but died at the scene.

A Home Office post mortem examination established that the victim died as a result of a single stab wound.

A second man in his 30s was arrested on suspicion of assault, but has since been released, with no further action taken against him.

A police cordon that was in place at a property in Antingham Drive has now been lifted.

Det Insp Lewis Craske said: “We are working to establish what happened in the events leading up to Friday’s death. In particular, we want to understand the relationship, if any, between the victim and the suspect, but at this early stage we believe this to be an isolated incident.

“If anyone has any information that would help in our investigations, we would be very keen to hear from them.”
