Neasden man refused bail alongside sports agent with Jay-Z and Ashley Cole connection
Kevin Richards, Christopher Nathaniel and seven other men are charged with murdering teenager in Canning Town
A Neasden man charged with the murder of a teenager has had his application for bail refused.
Kevin Richards, of North Circular Road, is claimed to have taken part in a revenge attack where 18-year-old Danny O’Shea was stabbed to death in Canning Town, east London.
The Old Bailey heard claims that the 32-year-old was one of nine men who knifed Mr O’Shea in the neck outside his mother’s front door on December 2 last year.
Christopher Nathaniel, 40, one of the accused, is claimed to have paid �1,500 to fund a revenge attack on a group of youths who robbed his business partner Paul Boadi, 34, of a Blackberry mobile phone.
