Jurejs Vankovs, 38, was last night charged with the murder of Michael John Murphy. He was also charged with possession of a bladed article. 

 

Vankovs, who was also charged with possession of a bladed article, will appear at Barkingside Magistrates' Court today.

 

Mr Murphy was attacked at around 3am on December 26 in Cranwood Street in east London. He died of his injuries despite being treated at the scene close to Old Street station.

 

His heartbroken family said they were 'devastated and heartbroken at the loss of Michael who was a loving father, son, brother and uncle and was a much-loved member of our family'.

 

The Metropolitan Police said Mr Murphy was knifed following an argument involving around 10 people.

 

Four people - two men aged 49 and 42 and two women aged 35 and 44 - were previously arrested on suspicion of murder on but were released with no further action.

 

Police told Londoners to not approach the suspected killer but to call 999 if they saw him.

 

They released CCTV images of the Latvian national in a black tracksuit and hat and detailed that he had been travelling around Old Street, Islington, on a red bicycle. He was arrested on January 1.

 

Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen from the Met's Specialist Crime Command previously said: 'We are continuing to piece together the events that led to Michael sustaining his injuries and would appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything in the Cranwood Street area on Boxing Day morning to come forward.

 

'Our initial enquiries have confirmed they was an argument in the street in the moments prior to Michael being stabbed involving a group of up to ten people which local residents may have heard.'

 

Increased police patrols were put up in the area Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway, who is responsible for policing in Hackney and Tower Hamlets said.

 

He previously said: 'Our thoughts are with Michael's family at this unimaginably difficult time.
