­­A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder after an aspiring lawyer was stabbed to death in northwest London in February.

The teenager is accused of the murder of Sven Badzak, 22, in Kilburn and the attempted murder of a 16-year-old boy.

The suspect, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is due to appear at Willesden Magistrates’ Court today.

He is the third person to be charged over the incident.

Shiroh Ambersley, 21, from Wembley, and Rashid Gedel, 20, from Ilford, east London, both denied murder at the Old Bailey in June.

The pair have been remanded in custody ahead of a trial at the same court on July 18 next year.

Six other males, aged between 17 and 23, have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
