A man has been charged with double murder after the shooting of a mother-of-nine and her nephew.

Obina Ezeoke, 24, has been charged with the murders of Annie Besala Ekofo, 53, and her nephew Bervil Kalikaka-Ekofo, 21. They were gunned down at a flat in East Finchley, north London, on Thursday shortly after 6.30am.

Scotland Yard said Ezeoke, of no fixed address, is to appear in custody at Hendon Magistrates' Court in north west London on Wednesday.

The Met revealed it has also been established that Mr Kalikaka-Ekofo, a psychology student, died from a gunshot wound to the head. His post-mortem was carried out at Northwick Park Hospital Mortuary on Saturday.

A 20-year-old man remains on bail until a date in late October.
