A third person has been charged with the murder of a Barking man who was stabbed to death in Lewisham.

Dean Pascal-Modeste, 21, was attacked in Mottingham on February 24 - three days before his 22nd birthday.

Devone Pusey, 19, from Bellingham is accused of his murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

He was charged yesterday and will appear before Bromley Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

Two 17-year-old boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were charged with Dean’s murder last month.

A trial has been set for August 29 at the Old Bailey.
