Man, 20, due in Carlisle court charged with murder

A 20-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Luke Hollingsworth who was found dead at his home in Stanwix, Carlisle.

Jamie Lee Armstrong, of Warwick Road, Carlisle, is due to appear before the city’s magistrates today.

He was arrested on suspicion of murder after armed police entered Mr Hollingsworth’s semi-detached home in Etterby Lea Road on July 10.

Police said at the time that the man they had arrested had “serious injuries” and was too ill to be questioned.

He was detained in hospital, under police guard, and was finally interviewed by detectives at the weekend.

Officers also made two arrests on Thursday for drugs offences in connection with the investigation.

A man, aged 27, and a woman, 25, both from Lancaster, have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Superintendent Mike Forrester, who is leading the investigation, said his officers still wanted to speak to anyone with information – no matter how trivial it might appear to be.

David Roberts, the coroner for north and west Cumbria, has opened an inquest, which heard that the cause of Mr Hollingsworth’s death was “unascertained”. He adjourned the inquest until December 6.
