Two further people have been charged with murder as part of an ongoing murder investigation in Bushey, bringing the total to six.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Major Crime Unit launched an investigation after Vishal Gohel, aged 44, was discovered unresponsive inside a flat in Bushey High Street at around 10.45pm on Sunday, January 23.

He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Two men were arrested on Friday, February 11, and were charged with murder the following morning.

Sakeen Gordon, aged 20, of Uxbridge Road, Ealing; and Brandon Browne, aged 21, of Laburnum Road, Rochester, Kent, are due before magistrates at St Albans today (Monday, February 14).

Four people appeared at St Albans Crown Court on Tuesday, February 8 charged with the murder of Mr Gohel:

  • Georgia Bruce-Annan, aged 20, of Harts Lane, in Barking;
  • Tianna Edwards-Hancock, aged 18, of Fresh Wharf Road, Barking;
  • Faith Hoppie, aged 21, of Blake Avenue, Barking;
  • Tervin Leslie, aged 21, of Hurst Street, London.

They were all remanded in custody. A plea and trial preparation hearing was set for Wednesday, March 30 and a trial date provisionally set for Monday, June 27, both at St Albans Crown Court.

Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, from the BCH Major Crime Unit said: “We have now charged six people with murder, but my team are still keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone with information.

“Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any information, no matter how small it might seem, it could be vital for our investigation.”
