The second teenager charged with last week’s Pawsons Road murder of Lucas Sutton has been named by police as Keahn Williams, 19, from Waddon.

Williams was arrested in the West Midlands on Saturday. He was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon.

He appeared in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday and was remanded in custody. Williams, together with a 16-year-old male who cannot be named, are to appear at the Old Bailey today.
