A man is due to appear before court accused of the murder of a Wearside grandfather.
Daniel Johnson, 20, formerly of Morris Street, Gateshead has been charged with murder following the death of David Wilson.
On Sunday, December 14, 2014, 49-year-old Mr Wilson was found dead inside an address in Southwick Road, Sunderland.
Today, Johnson has been charged and will appear at South Tyneside Magistrates' Court tomorrow morning.
A 35-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder, who had been on bail for several months, will face no further action through the police inquiry.
Popular Mr Wilson was originally from Hetton and had only lived at the Southwick Road flat for a number of weeks before his killing.
He had previously lived in Sunderland city centre.
