An inquest into the death of a 23-year-old man who died from a stab wound in an alleyway just 10 minutes from his home has been adjourned. 

Felizardo Jose Viera-Balde was attacked in St Peter's Road in Great Yarmouth at about 12.40pm on Wednesday, February 8. 

Mr Viera-Balde, who was living at the Elstow Hotel off Stanley Terrace, worked as a factory operative. 

He was found collapsed near Wellington Road where he died from his injuries, and was identified by a member of his family at the scene.

An inquest into his death was opened by the assistant coroner for Norfolk, Christopher Leach, at Norfolk Coroner’s Court earlier this year. 

And a follow-up review took place on November 29.  

Mr Leach said: “Our investigation has been suspended and this inquest adjourned pending the outcome of those police investigations and any criminal prosecutions brought in connection with that death. 

Eastern Daily Press:

“Criminal proceedings have yet to conclude and therefore, having reviewed the file on this case, I have adjourned this inquest.” 

A further review will take place at the court in February next year. 

A post-mortem examination found the medical cause of his death to be a single stab wound to the chest.   

Junior Suleimane, 21, of Market Place in Yarmouth, has been charged with the murder of Mr Viera-Balde, as well as possessing a knife in a public place on the same date.  

He is due to appear at Norwich Crown Court on July 22 for trial, which is expected to last 10 days. 

Jaimes Santos, 43, of Nelson Road South in Yarmouth, has been charged with assisting an offender. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team on 101 quoting incident number 176 of February 8.
