Brixton Stabbing: Second Teen Charged
A 16-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a promising teenage footballer described as a "role model" for his community.
Junior Nkwelle, 15, was stabbed to death outside a block of flats on the Loughborough Estate in Brixton, south London, on Thursday evening.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, with police saying the killing was not believed to be gang-related.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will appear at Camberwell Green Youth Court on Monday, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said.
A 14-year-old girl who was charged with Junior's murder on Saturday is also due to appear at the court on Monday.
Junior's mother, who wished to be known only as Stella, issued a short statement through the police on Saturday pleading for anyone with information to tell officers.
She said: "I would like all of the kids who saw what happened to my son to come forward and speak to the police.
"I am pleading with the parents to let their children do that, and to support their children in telling the truth. If they do not it could lead to this happening again one day."
