Martin Thomas death: Boy, 13, charged with murder

A 13-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a man who died during a break-in in south-west London.

Martin Thomas, 39, was found at his home in Huntingfield Road, Roehampton, on 22 April. He died from a stab wound that punctured his lung.

The teenager, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was arrested on Friday evening.

He has been remanded in custody to appear before Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Monday.

A 15-year-old boy, who must also remain anonymous, has also been charged with murder and appeared in court last week.

He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 4 August for a plea and case management hearing.

Two other teenagers, aged 16 and 17, were arrested in connection with the investigation and released on bail pending further enquiries.
