A 55-year-old man has been charged with the Christmas Day murder of a man in Islington.
Amar Nafazy will appear in Highbury Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday over the death of Claudius Francis who was found stabbed to death on Sunday.
Police were called to a property on Holloway Road at roughly 4.55pm on Christmas Day following concerns for the welfare of a resident.
They found a man with a stab injury and immediately provided first aid.
The London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance also attended but despite their efforts, the victim was declared dead at the scene.
He has later identified as Claudius Francis.
His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers, Scotland Yard said.
A post-mortem examination held on Monday confirmed he died as a result of multiple stab wounds.
Detectives from the Specialist Crime Command are investigating.
