A 17-year-old boy has appeared in court charged with the murder of girl scout Jodie Chesney.

The boy is the fourth person to be charged with the murder.

He was also charged with possessing a stun gun when he appeared at Barkingside Magistrates Court yesterday and was remanded in custody.

Three other people have been charged with Jodie's murder: Manuel Petrovic (20), of Highfield Road, Romford; Svenson Ong-a-kwie (19), of Hillfoot Road, Collier Row; and a 16-year-old boy from Romford.

They are due to stand trial on September 2 at the Old Bailey.
