John Montague, Senior District Crown Prosecutor from the Crown Prosecution Service in Wessex, said: "I have today authorised Dorset Police to charge Nicholas Price with the murder of Abdal-Rahman Al-Rabia and the attempted murder of a 20-year-old local man in Weymouth on 8 November 2015.

"Mr Abdal-Rahman Al-Rabia died of a result of being stabbed to the chest. It is alleged that Nicholas Price is responsible for his death and it is also alleged that he stabbed a 20-year-old local man.

"I carefully reviewed all the available evidence provided to me by Dorset Police, and in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, I am satisfied that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and it is in the public interest to prosecute Nicholas Price with these offences.

"He will appear at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court on Friday 12 November 2015.

"Proceedings are now ongoing and the defendant has the right to a fair trial. It is very important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings."
