A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of murder after Leneto Kellengbeck was stabbed to death in Solihull.

The 24-year-old was arrested last night from an address in Smith’s Wood area and is currently in police custody; he will be questioned later today.

Leneto, 24, who leaves behind a two-year-old daughter, was found with critical injuries when police were called to Arran Way just after 11.15pm on March 29.

Leneto who lived nearby and was also known as Lenny, died a short time later.

A post-mortem revealed he died of multiple stab wounds.

Detective inspector Jim Colclough from the force’s homicide team said: “This arrest is a significant development in our investigation. Only last week Leneto’s family bravely spoke about the devastating impact his death has had on them.

“We are determined to get them the answers they so desperately need and we’re committed to bring his killer or killers to justice.”
