A 19-year-old man has been charged with murdering two teenagers in an alleyway two years ago.

Mohamed Abdi Farah, 19, and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18, were shot in the head on the Fishermead council estate in Milton Keynes in May 2011.

Thames Valley Police said Ahmed Ahmed, of no fixed address, had been charged with two counts of murder.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court on Monday morning.

In January, two men were jailed for a combined total of 70 years after being convicted of murdering the teenagers.

Fuad Awale, 25, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 38 years, while 22-year-old Sharmake Abdulkadir was also jailed for life and ordered to spend at least 32 years in jail.
