A MAN was arrested in Burton in connection with a murder case.

Officers with Staffordshire Police made the arrest after Connan McLeod was found with stab wounds in Stone, Staffordshire, on Saturday morning.

Three men, aged 20, 26 and 29, have now been arrested in connection with the case.

Two men arrested on Saturday morning have been released on police bail, while the man arrested in Burton on Sunday afternoon was still being questioned last night.

Detective Superintendent Wayne Jones thanked the public for supporting their appeal for witnesses.

He said: “We issued the appeal to find a man in connection with the incident late on Saturday afternoon.

“The Facebook appeal alone reached nearly 200,000 people. I believe that this support has contributed to this latest arrest.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
