A man appears in court today charged with the murder of Leshawn Williams in Silvertown near the Royal Docks four days before Christmas.
Leshawn, who was 29, was found stabbed on the pavement when police were called to an incident in Hanameel Street, off Woolwich Road, at 2am on December 21.
Paramedics tried to save him, but Leshawn was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives have since arrested and charged a 28-year-old man, Scotland Yard confirmed last night.
Michael Hyde from Swindon in Wiltshire, is due to appear at Bromley Magistrates' Court in south London today, charged with the murder of Leshawn Williams.
