Two teenagers have appeared at the Old Bailey accused of murdering an NHS worker while he was on the phone to his girlfriend.
David Gomoh, 24, was allegedly chased and stabbed eight times after he stepped outside his Custom House home to go to a nearby shop on the evening of April 26.
The marketing graduate, who worked for the NHS in supplies and procurement, was on the phone to his girlfriend at the time.
David, whose mother is a nurse, was killed just days before he was due to attend the funeral of his father, who died after contracting Covid-19.
A post-mortem examination found David died of stab wounds to the chest and abdomen.
