Mother and son who 'gave shelter to homeless man' stabbed to death at family home
#1
Quote:A woman and her teenaged son who were stabbed to death had reportedly taken the man charged with their murder into the family home.

Tracey Wilkinson, 50 and son Pierce, 13, died and husband, Peter, 47, was left fighting for his life following the triple stabbing in the West Midlands town of Stourbridge.

The family is believed to have answered the door to a man at 8am on Thursday morning shortly before the attack.

Mr Wilkinson, a millionaire businessman, remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital with his 18-year-old daughter Lydia by his side.

Officers confirmed Aaron Barley, 23, was arrested after taking Mr Wilkinson’s Land Rover which he crashed during a police chase. He has since been charged with two counts of murder and one of attempted murder.

Shocked neighbours in the leafy suburban street of Greyhound Lane told reporters the couple were “good Samaritans” with “hearts of gold” and had offered sanctuary to a young homeless man with drug problems around Christmas in 2015.

Friends said that Mrs Wilkinson, who reportedly overcame alcohol problems of her own, invited a man she found sleeping rough in late 2015 to stay in the family’s £600,000 home.

The couple are said to have later set the man up in a flat 30 miles away.

According to neighbours, Mr Wilkinson gave the man a job in his safety barrier business, but the addict fell back into drug dependency and continued to ask for money from the couple.

Mrs Wilkinson is understood to have worked as a volunteer at a centre for people with drug and alcohol addiction.
