Wolverhampton murder charges after victim identified

Tributes have been paid to a father found with fatal head injuries in Wolverhampton this week as we’ve charged a man with his murder.

Roy Deeley-Price was discovered with serious injuries in Tettenhall Road at just after 7am on Monday (29 May) and was sadly confirmed dead at the scene.

We arrested Carl Ellitts in connection with the death on Wednesday and he’s now been charged with murder. The 25-year-old, of no fixed address, has also been charged with three unrelated robbery matters, three counts of rape and two offences of assault.

He has been remanded to appear before Wolverhampton Magistrates Court today (3 June).

In a statement, the family of 48-year-old Mr Deeley-Price said: “Roy’s life was not without it’s troubles however he did not deserve to have this happen to him.

“He will be sadly missed by all who loved him, who’s hearts will never heal.  He was incredibly proud of his two children and only ever wished the best for everyone. Live Forever Roy- See you later.”

Four other people arrested in connection with our enquiries into the death of Mr Deeley-Price have been bailed pending further enquiries.


We continue to appeal for anyone with information to contact us
