A second teenager has been charged with the murder of a 17-year-old boy, Scotland Yard said.

The 17-year-old male will appear in custody at Highbury Magistrates' Court tomorrow accused of stabbing Joshua Folkes to death.

Kreshnik Etemi, 18, from Muswell Hill, appeared at the same court yesterday charged with murder. He was remanded in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey tomorrow.

Joshua, known as Money J, was murdered outside a friend's home in Palmers Green, north London, in the early hours of Tuesday.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of Joshua's death as a stab wound to the chest. A 15-year-old girl arrested in Enfield on Wednesday in connection with the murder has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
