Blake, aged 21, of no fixed address, is accused of murder, violent disorder, assault with intent to commit robbery and having a knife in public.

Bennett, 22, of Court Lane, Erdington, is charged with murder and violent disorder.

Mr Donoghue was taken to hospital with serious stab injuries but the 21-year-old died soon after arrival at hospital.

Two other men, aged 20 and 21, were charged with murder earlier this week. 
Another 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail, while a man aged 39 was detained on suspicion of assisting an offender and released pending further investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro, from the force's homicide team, said:  "Our officers have been working round the clock to find those responsible for the killing of Jack.

"We have also received a fantastic response from the public who have provided important information during our enquiries so far."
