Girl, 14, charged with murdering man accused of sexual offences
Tuesday 27 April 2010
A 14-year-old girl was appearing in court today charged with murdering a 45-year-old man who was accused of sexual offences.
The victim, named in reports as builder Robert Daley, was found stabbed to death at an address in Ferndale Road, Stockwell, south London, on Friday evening.
The teenage girl will appear in custody at Sutton Youth Court, the Metropolitan Police said.
The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed a man called Robert Daley had been investigated over allegations of sexual offences but the case was dropped.
A spokeswoman said: "We considered the file earlier this month but there was insufficient evidence to charge him."
Police said the victim, who has not yet been formally identified, died from stab wounds to the chest.
An 18-year-old man was arrested earlier in connection with the death and was bailed to return in May.
