Man Charged With Oxford Historian Murder

A man has been charged with the murder of Oxford historian Adrian Greenwood.

Michael Danaher, 50, of Hadrians Court in Peterborough, will appear in custody at Banbury Magistrates' Court later.

Mr Greenwood was found by his cleaner in the hallway of his four-storey home on Iffley Road at around 3pm last Thursday.

The 42-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, with a post-mortem examination saying he died from multiple stab wounds to the chest and neck.

Mr Greenwood was also a biographer, author and a dealer of art, cars and historical artefacts.

He was educated at Tonbridge School in Kent before heading to Christchurch College, Oxford, where he was a graduate of politics, philosophy and economics.

His most recent book - Through Spain With Wellington - was launched in March.

A second man, aged 26, had been arrested on suspicion of murdering Mr Greenwood but he was released without charge on Saturday.
