A fifth man has been charged with murdering a 38-year-old who was stabbed in north-west London in July.

Zydrunas Laurinavicius, a Lithuanian national, was found by police on Parson Street, Hendon, close to Brent Street, on 3 July.

A post-mortem examination found the victim died from stab wounds to the chest.

Stephen Lansana, 21, of no fixed address appeared at Hendon Magistrates' Court and remanded in custody.

Four other men were previously charged with the murder of Laurinavicius: Bruno Guimaraes, 22, from Stratford, Marlon O'Brien, 21, and Terngu Agera, 23, both from Newham, and Terae Eusebe, 20, from East Ham.
