A man has today (Monday 18th July) been charged with murdeer following the death of a Sunderland Dad.
David Wilson, 49, was found dead at his home on Southwick Road, Southwick, on Sunday December 14th 2014.
Daniel Johnson, 20, formerly of Morris Street, Gateshead, has been charged with murder.
Johnson has been charged and due in South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court tomorrow morning.
The investigation has lasted more than 18 months so far.
Last year David’s family pleaded for information about Mr Wilson’s death and released this statement:
“David has missed so much, including what should have been his 50th birthday, instead of celebrating the day we marked the date by laying flowers in his memory.
“David was a very kind individual who did not deserve to have this life taken as he did.
“He was a dad, granddad, son, brother, uncle and friend and he deserves justice.”
