A Walthamstow man has been charged with helping to arrange the robbery and murder of a young man in Haringey.

Jordan Briscoe, 25, died in hospital on 5th March after he was found with a stab wound to the chest in Arnold Road, Tottenham.

Three days later, police investigating his death arrested Karl Black, a 42-year-old from Cassiobury Road in Walthamstow. He was later charged with conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob.

On the same day, police also arrested a 17-year-old boy, who cannot be identified due to his young age, who they later charged with murder and robbery.
