A second man has been charged with murder after a "loving" father from Romford was fatally stabbed in central London.

Emmanuel Odunlami was found with a stab wound in Gresham Street at 11.30pm on May 1.

The 32-year-old was taken to hospital where he sadly died.   

Jordell Menzies, of Tennyson Road in Queens Park, was charged with murder today (May 18).

The 25-year-old has been remanded in custody and will appear today at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court. 

Menzies will next appear at the Old Bailey on May 19.

On Monday - May 16 - Quincy Ffrench-Yethman became the first person to be charged in connection with Emmanuel's killing.

The 26-year-old, of Foyle Road in Tottenham, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court yesterday (May 17).

He will next appear at the Old Bailey on June 19, and has been remanded in custody until that date.

A recent tribute from Emmanuel's family described the 32-year-old as a "loving father, fiancé, son, brother, family member and friend who was unjustly taken ahead of his time".
