Police have charged two men on suspicion of murder after a model, Harry Uzoka was stabbed to death, in what's believed to be a robbery which went wrong.

Uzoka, who was on the books of Premier Model Management, died from a single stab wound. 

Detectives have charged George Koh, 24, from Camden, and Jonathan Okigbo, 23, from Kentish Town, with murder, while Koh is also facing charges of possessing an offensive weapon.

Koh was arrested on Sunday and Okigbo was arrested yesterday, Scotland Yard said.

Both men will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court today.

A 27-year-old man, who was arrested on the day of the incident, has been released under investigation and a 28-year-old man, who was also arrested that day, has been released with no further action to be taken.

Neighbours on Old Oak Road, East Acton, reported a shout of 'hand it over' in the melee which involved several men.

Mr Uzoka, 25, staggered into the street from a housing estate before collapsing.
