Builder faces shooting death charge

A 21-year-old builder has been charged with the murder of a teenager shot dead on an estate, police said.

Marvin Henry, 17, was shot in the chest on an estate near Bray Road in Mill Hill, north-west London, shortly before 12.30am on Wednesday.

Ithai McPhee, 21, of Abbots Road, Edgware, will appear in custody at Enfield Magistrates' Court, Scotland Yard said.

Marvin, known as Spooky, was taken to Barnet General Hospital by ambulance but died on arrival.

The teenager had recently left a referral unit designed to help expelled pupils get back into mainstream education.

Some friends described him as a cheerful and friendly teenager who enjoyed playing football and rap music.

Eleven young people arrested over the shooting were released on bail the day after the incident, the same day McPhee was detained.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the youths, aged between 14 and 18, and a 21-year-old woman would answer bail in late November.
