|Three Accused of Stabbing Roehampton Man to Death|
Teen becomes one of youngest ever to face murder charge
Three males including two teenage boys have appeared in the Old Bailey this week charged with the murder of Martin Thomas at his home in Roehampton last year.
One of the accused was thirteen years of age at the time of the offence making him one of the youngest people to stand trial for murder in British criminal history.
On 22nd April 2014, 39 year old Mr. Thomas was found with stab wounds at a property on Huntingfield Road. The London Air Ambulance helicopter attended but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The group met up at around 6.30pm, on the day of Mr Thomas’s death, at Waitrose in Putney. It is alleged that they went to the home of Mr. Thomas intending to rob him.
The case is expected to last over a month.
