Mr Dobrowski, 24, was killed on Clapham Common
Two men have appeared in court charged with murdering a gay bar manager on Clapham Common, south London.

Jody Dobrowski, 24, was beaten to death on 14 October while walking home from a friend's house. He was found unconscious but died later in hospital.

Thomas Pickford, 25, who is unemployed and homeless, and Scott Walker, 33, a decorator, also homeless, appeared at South Western Magistrates' Court.

Both have been remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 31 January.

The men spoke only to confirm their names, date of birth and to tell the court they were of no fixed abode. There was no application for bail.

Mr Dobrowski, assistant manager at Bar Risa Jongleurs in Camden, north London, died from head, neck and facial injuries.

He had been beaten so badly his family did not recognise him.
