Two teenagers have appeared in court charged with the murder of an NHS worker who was killed outside his Custom House home.
Marketing graduate David Gomoh, 24, who worked for the NHS in supplies and procurement, was stabbed to death in Freemasons Road just days before he was due to attend the funeral of his father, who had died after contracting Covid-19.
Muhammad Jalloh, 18, who said he was of no fixed address, and a 16-year-old boy, from Telford, Shropshire, who cannot be named, each spoke to confirm their personal details when they appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court today (Monday, April 4).
They are both also charged with conspiracy to cause GBH with intent in connection with another alleged incident shortly before David was found with fatal knife wounds on the evening of April 26.
A post-mortem examination found that David had been stabbed in the chest and abdomen.
