A man from Peterborough has been charged with murdering a respected historian who was found stabbed to death at his home in Oxford.

The body of 42 year old Adrian Greenwood was discovered by his cleaner on Thursday (7th April).

A post-mortem examination found the Oxford-educated academic, who also dealt in antiques and collected Harry Potter books, had died from multiple stab wounds.

50 year old Michael Danaher, from Hadrians Court, was arrested on Sunday and charged with murder.

He will appear in custody at Banbury Magistrates' Court later.

A 26-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of murder on the day Mr Greenwood's body was found, has been released without charge.
