Two teenagers accused of chasing and stabbing a church minister’s son to death in Harlesden have appeared in court today where they denied his murder.
Idris Daud, 19, of Anton Place, Wembley and a 17-year-old boy, also from Wembley, allegedly took part in a gang attack on 18 year-old David Headlam in the early hours of 29 June this year
Mr Headlam, the son of Pentecostal church minister Bishop Alonzo Headlam, was targeted as he walked home with a friend.
He was chased along the road and stabbed repeatedly in the head and legs as he cowered in a garden in Drayton Road. His friend was stabbed in the hip.
Daud and the 17 year-old boy appeared at the Old Bailey by video link from prison to plead not guilty to the murder of Mr Headlam and the wounding with intent of his friend.
