A youth has appeared in court charged with murdering an 18-year-old student who was stabbed in a street fight.

Boduka Mudianga, known as Louis, was attacked in Edmonton, north London, during a confrontation with a number of people last week.

A second 18-year-old was treated in hospital for stab wounds.

The 17-year-old from the Edmonton area is charged with murder and grievous bodily harm and will reappear before Enfield magistrates on 6 February.

Four other suspects have been bailed over the murder which happened on 21 January.

Mr Mudianga was an art and design student at Southgate College.

A post-mortem examination revealed he died from a stab wound to the chest. He was the third teenager in London to be killed with a knife since the start of 2008.
