    A second person has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the stabbing of a 17-year-old girl in an east London park.

    Jodie Chesney was attacked while playing music with friends in Harold Hill, Romford, on 1 March. Jodie was with five other teenagers near a children's playground in Harold Hill at about 21:00 GMT when they became aware of two males who they did not speak to. The pair then left but about 30 minutes later they returned and walked straight towards the group where one of them stabbed the victim in the back.

    The male suspect was being held in custody in London. A 20-year-old man who was arrested in Leicester on 5 March on suspicion of murder also remains in custody.

    Jodie was the fifth teenager to be stabbed to death in London this year.

    Manuel Petrovic, of Romford, and a 16-year-old boy are accused over the death of 17-year-old Jodie on 1 March.

    Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC set a three-week trial for 2 September and a plea hearing on 28 May. At the end of the brief hearing, the judge remanded the defendant into custody.

    The 16-year-old defendant will appear at Barkingside magistrates court on Monday. The 18-year-old man from Romford is being held in police custody on suspicion of murder.

    A 50-year-old man and 38-year-old woman, both from Dagenham, east London, and a 17-year-old boy were being held on suspicion of assisting an offender.

    This is a bit confusing: a 20 year old man, a 18 year old man, a 16 year old boy for murder along with the 50 year old man, 38 year old woman and 17 year old boy assisting are mentioned in the above posts: could someone clarify?

    This seems like a totally senseless crime with no motive at all.

    Yes, all six have been arrested - three for murder, three for assisting an offender. All still in custody as far as I know.

    I presume, but don't know that the 50 year old man and 38 year old woman are who he lives with and the 17 year old is a friend or a sibling - all lied about his whereabouts perhaps? JMO. Poor Jodie
