A second person has been charged following the death of a man in Burton on Saturday.
A 16-year-old boy, from Derby, has been charged with murder.
He is due to appear before magistrates at the North Staffordshire Justice Centre today (Friday 17 December).
A 17-year-old boy, a 16-year-old girl and 18-year-old man, all from Derby, arrested earlier this week, have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
Oliver Freckleton’s family have paid tribute to him: “Oliver was our world and has given us 19 years of love, laughter and wonderful memories.
“He would walk into any room and instantly light it up.
“Oliver idolised his friends and family, but more than anything in the world his baby daughter and girlfriend.
“He had his whole life in front of him and the pain we are feeling now is overwhelming.
“Just the thought of not seeing his cheeky smile or hearing his big booming voice again is breaking our hearts. Our lives will never be the same.
“We would like to thank our family, friends and Oliver’s friends for their support at this horrendous time.
“Thank you to Staffordshire Police for their support and tireless effort to get justice for Oliver and our family.”
