A 35-year-old woman has appeared in court charged with killing a chef after he was stabbed to death in his car.
Georgina Henshaw was charged with killing pensioner Philip Rolph, 65, in the early hours of last Friday.
Police and paramedics dashed to Alder Drive, in Chelmsley Wood, Birmingham, at 1 am after the 65-year-old victim managed to raise the alarm.
He was rushed to hospital but died a short time later.
