A 20-year-old man has been charged the murder of Elliot Francique, who was found suffering from stab wounds in his own home.

The 20-year-old victim was discovered fatally injured in his bedroom at his home in Hudson Close, Plaistow, last Tuesday (April 19).

Scotland Yard say Elliot was subjected to a “frenzied attack”, which was reportedly carried out by a forced intruder.

Despite efforts by land and air ambulance crews he died at the scene at 4.31pm, the Metropolitan Police said.

Menelik Campbell, 20, was charged with murder yesterday (April 28) following his arrest the previous day.

Campbell, of Dalston, in Hackney, is due to appear at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court today (April 29).
