UK police charge man with three counts of murder after Nottingham attacks

Following a stabbing and van attack in the central English city of Nottingham earlier this week that killed three people, British police charged a man on Friday with three counts of murder.

The allegations are against Barnaby Philip John Webber, Grace Sashi O’Malley-Kumar, both 19, and Ian Robert Coates, 65, who were all fatally stabbed on Tuesday, according to police.

Valdo Calocane, aged 31, of no fixed address, has also been charged with three counts of attempted murder, relating to three members of the public struck by a van, the police added.

“These charges are a significant development and arise as a result of our thorough investigation into these horrific incidents that occurred in our city,” Nottinghamshire Police Chief Constable Kate Meynell said.
