Agnes Sina-Inakoju murder trial begins

Accused stand trial at the Old Bailey

TWO men are due to go on trial at the Old Bailey accused of murdering a 16-year-old girl shot in the neck at a Hoxton takeaway.

Agnes Sina-Inakoju, 16, of St Brelades Court, De Beauvoir estate, died two days after being gunned down last April at the Hoxton Chicken and Pizza shop in Hoxton Street.

Leon Dunkley, 22, and Mohammed Smoured, 21, both of Hackney, each deny murder and a firearms charge.

They are being tried alongside two 16-year-old youths, who cannot be named because of their age, who face further firearms charges.
