The jury in the trial of a teenager who fatally stabbed a 17-year-old in Palmers Green have retired to consider their verdict.

Joshua Folkes, 17, of New Southgate, was killed in the early hours of December 3, 2013, in Bowes Road, Palmers Green.

A 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, of Bowes Road, denies the murder charge.

Kreshnik Etemi, 18, of Hill Road, in Muswell Hill, and Halil Alkay, 18, of Glynn Road, in Wood Green, were both acquitted of the murder.

The jury has been hearing evidence since May 19, and has today been sent out by Judge Christopher Moss to consider a verdict.
