“Murder” boy due in court

A 15-YEAR-OLD boy is due to appear at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court this morning charged with murder.

The youth was charged after Joseph Smith, 18, was stabbed in Lacarno Road, Moorends, near to the junction with Barnsley Road, on Wednesday evening.

A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Smith died from a single stab wound to the chest, police said this morning.

Scawthorpe man Ray Eden, 42, and Henry Mackellar, 50, from Mexborough, have also died this week following alleged violent altercations.
