Woman from Manor Park faces murder trial

A woman accused of killing her 15-year-old brother on Christmas Day in Manor Park is in custody on remand for trial at the Old Bailey later this year.

Magalie Bamu, 28, denies murder and two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm relating to two girls.

A co-accused, Eric Baikubi, 27, is also in custody on the murder charge until September 5.

Their arrest followed the discovery of the teenager in a bath at a flat in Hathaway Crescent. He had head injuries.
