Four teenagers have appeared in court charged with the murder of a 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death in north London.

Three 18-year-olds and one 16-year-old are accused of killing Negus McClean in Edmonton in April 2011.

Negus, from Edmonton, suffered multiple stab wounds after being chased by about 13 youths thought to be on bicycles.

All four defendants appeared at Enfield Magistrates' Court and have been remanded in custody.

Billal Lariba, 18, of Mayall Close, Enfield, Brandon Hamilton, 18, of Broad Oak Avenue, Enfield, Tershan Edwards, 18, of St Albans, Hertfordshire, and a 16-year-old boy from Enfield, north London, who cannot be named, will next appear at the Old Bailey on Thursday.

A 16-year-old girl from Enfield and Adam Langston, 18, of Beaconsfield Road, Enfield, also appeared before magistrates on Tuesday accused of perverting the course of justice.

They had been released on bail on the condition they do not contact any of the other defendants.

The stabbing happened in Westminster Road on 10 April 2011.
