A second person is to appear in court charged with the murder of a shopper, killed in a supermarket in an alleged row over queue-jumping.

Kevin Tripp, 57, was punched to the ground in Sainsbury's supermarket in Merton High Street, south London.

Antonette Richardson, 37, from Sedgehill Road, Catford, will appear before Sutton Magistrates' Court over the attack on Tuesday.

Her partner, Tony Virsami, 37, is also charged with Mr Tripp's murder.

Mr Virsami appeared before Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Thursday before being remanded in police custody.

He will appear at the Old Bailey on 18 September.

Mr Tripp, from Colliers Wood, south London, suffered serious head injuries during the incident and died in hospital on Wednesday.

'Self-effacing'

He lived with his partner and their five-year-old daughter.

His neighbour of more than 20 years, Brenda McDonagh, 70, described Mr Tripp as a "nice chap".

"He was in the wrong place at the wrong time," she said.

"Kevin was a quiet, self-effacing man.

"The last thing in the world he would do would be to become involved in anything violent.

"He just wasn't that sort of guy. He just got on with life."
