Leicester man charged with Kent Street murder

18/09/2013

CPS East Midlands has authorised Leicestershire Police to charge a 19 year old man with the murder of Antoin Akpom. Abdul Hakim has been charged and appeared at Leicester Magistrates Court on 18 September.

The evidence has been reviewed by a Crown Advocate from the CPS East Midlands Complex Casework Unit, who has decided that there is sufficient evidence to charge and that it is in the public interest for a prosecution to take place.

It is important to note that proceedings are now active, and the accused is entitled to a fair trial. Nothing should be said or reported that would prejudice that right.
