According to West Midlands Police, the results of the post-mortem revealed that the school boy had died after being stabbed twice.
The fatal incident took place in Mount Road, Lanesfield, Wolverhampton, shortly before 21:00 BST last Wednesday. Ronan is supposed to have died at the scene.
According to media reports, Josiah Francis, 20, from Birmingham, and two 16-year-old boys whose names are withheld due to legal reasons will appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
