A third teenager has been charged with the murder of a man who was found unconscious in a churchyard in Wigan.
A 17-year-old from the Merseyside area – who cannot be named for legal reasons - has been charged with Joint Enterprise Murder after Steven McMyler, 34, was discovered outside Wigan Parish Church, Bishopgate, on 6 August.
Shortly before 7.50pm police were called by the ambulance service to reports of concern for a man outside the church.
Despite the best efforts of emergency services, McMyler died at the scene.
The teen was remanded in custody and appeared at Manchester Magistrates Court on Saturday morning.
A 19-year-old man and a 13-year-old boy have both previously also been charged with murder.
Mr McMyler’s family have paid tribute to him.
A statement read: “Steven was an extremely likeable lad and everyone who came across him loved him as much as we all did.
“He was a popular lad and he lit the room up as soon as he walked in.
“Everybody thought the world of him as he had a heart of gold.
“We can’t believe what has happened and we are struggling to come to terms with this terrible tragedy.”
