Ricky Collins, from Sheffield, was found seriously injured in Westthorpe Road last Monday (29 March) after reportedly being assaulted.
The 31-year-old had suffered stab wounds and sadly later died in hospital. A murder investigation was subsequently launched.
Last night (Tuesday 6 April), officers charged Bradley Ward (24) who is from the Frecheville area of Sheffield, with murder.
He appeared at Southern Derbyshire Magistrate’s Court this morning and was remanded into custody. He is due to appear at Derby Crown Court on Friday.

Detectives are still appealing for help in finding a silver 59 plate Vauxhall Astra believed to be connected to the case.
They would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a similar vehicle parked in an unusual spot in the last few days, or offered a silver Astra for sale since 29 March.
