A 14-year-old is among three males who have been charged with the murder of Andrew Jaipaul in Holloway.

The 21-year-old was stabbed on the Andover Estate, off Hornsey Road, on June 26 last year.

Andrew, who lived in Birnam Road, was working as a painter-decorator at the time of his death, with dreams of becoming a fashion designer.

The cause of death was multiple incised stab wounds, a post-mortem found.

Three people were today charged with his murder. All three are also further charged with violent disorder.

Those charged are Tommy McInerny, 20, of Pilgrims Way, Islington; Jojo Mafwa, 18, of St Margaret’s Avenue, Haringey; and a 14-year-old boy from the Upper Holloway area.

They are due to appear in custody at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
