Teenager remanded over Jimmy Mizen murder
Thursday 15 May 2008
A 19-year-old man was today remanded in custody charged with the murder of 16-year-old schoolboy Jimmy Mizen.
The popular church-going teenager died after being attacked in the Three Cooks bakery in Lee, south-east London, on Saturday. It was the day after his 16th birthday.
Jake Fahri, 19, of Millborough Crescent, also in Lee, today appeared at Sutton Magistrates' Court.
He spoke only to confirm his name and address during the short hearing and magistrates refused an application to release him on bail.
They committed the case to the Old Bailey where Fahri will next appear on 21 August.
Jimmy, a 6ft 4in committed Christian, was the 13th teenager to be murdered in London so far this year.
He died after he was hit in the neck with broken glass while he was in the bakery buying food.
The GCSE student's 26-year-old brother Tommy was with his brother and cradled him as he lay bleeding to death.
Jimmy's parents, Barry, 56, and Margaret, 55, have paid loving tribute to their "saint" of a son and recalled the happy final few days they spent with him.
Mr Mizen, who is deputy chairman of governors at his son's school, St Thomas More Catholic Comprehensive in Eltham, south-east London, said: "He was a dear, dear, sweet young man. We loved him dearly.
"On the night of his birthday he was going out with his friends and we cuddled him. That is just a great, great memory."
The schoolboy, who lived with his family in Dallinger Road, Lee, had been due to embark on an apprenticeship in the housing department at Southwark Council.
