A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a mechanic who was stabbed to death in Harlesden.

Dwayne King, 29, is accused of killing 55-year-old Granville Thomas in an alleyway which runs behind Ranelagh Road and Station Road, on June 29.

The married father, who was also known as ‘Rat’ or ‘Blacks’, worked as a mechanic at a garage based in Ranelagh Road.

King, of no fixed address, appeared at the Old Bailey last week.

He was remanded in custody to appear for a plea and case management hearing on September 25.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, who is leading the investigation, has renewed a witness appeal.

He said: “I continue to appeal to anyone who may have been in the area as well as witnesses to the stabbing to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 020 8785 8099 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
