A 20-year-old man faces a retrial over the murder of a teenage student who was stabbed in the heart after performing at a south London nightclub.

Carl Beatson Asiedu, 19, died outside Club Life in Vauxhall in August 2009, the Old Bailey heard.

Jurors were unable to agree a verdict on a murder charge against Junior Ademujimi-Falade, of Camberwell, south London.

But the defendant was convicted of violent disorder.

Mr Asiedu and fellow student Peter Lama, 19, had been performing with their group Kid 'n' Play at the venue earlier that night, the jury heard.

Abu Mansaray, 20, of no fixed address, and Bolaji Kako-Are, 20, of Walworth, south London, were also convicted of violent disorder.

Mr Mansaray had been cleared of wounding Mr Lama with intent at an earlier stage during the trial.

Two other defendants - Emmanuel Osei-Anane, 19, of Camberwell, and Edwin Oppong, 20, of Peckham - were cleared of violent disorder at an earlier hearing.
