A man is to be sentenced for murdering a father whose body was found in the basement of a terraced house on New Year's Day.

Stuart Millership, 33, had been due to stand trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court but pleaded guilty to killing Baljit Singh after a jury had been sworn in earlier this month.

Mr Singh, from Edgbaston, Birmingham, disappeared on December 23 last year after reportedly leaving his home to collect a birthday cake for his son.

The 50-year-old's body was found by police at about 9am on January 1 at a house in Beeches Road, Rowley Regis, West Midlands.

A post-mortem examination found that Mr Singh died from head injuries and a knife wound to his neck.

Millership, of Beeches Road, was arrested on New Year's Eve on suspicion of stealing Mr Singh's Range Rover and was later charged with murder.
