Teen charged with murder over stabbing death

A 16-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a man who died from a stab wound to the heart.

Shaun Chambers, 21, was found stabbed in Walworth, south-east London, on 26 September with an 18-year-old who had also been attacked.

They were taken to hospital, where Mr Chambers, of Greenwich, later died. The other man has since been discharged.

The suspect from Peckham, south London, was also charged with two counts of grievous bodily harm with intent.

He will appear at Camberwell Youth Court later.
