A third man has been charged with the murder of Jodie Chesney.

Svenson Ong-a-kwie, 18, will appear in court tomorrow after he was arrested on Sunday.

Two other males have previously been charged with the 17-year-old student’s murder.

Met Police launched their murder probe after the Girl Scout was stabbed in a park in Harold Hill, east London, on March 1.

Since then, Manuel Petrovic, 20, was charged with murder. The Croatian national, from Romford, faces trial in September.

A 16-year-old suspect, also of Romford, has been charged with the teenager’s murder.

Three other people – a 50-year-old man; a 38-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy – who were also arrested on 10 March on suspicion of assisting an offender – have been released under investigation.

Jodie Chesney was a devoted Girl Scout

Jodie was listening to music with her boyfriend and four other pals in a park when she was attacked.

Paramedics dashed to save the A-level student but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ong-a-kwie will appear at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

Paying tribute to Jodie, her heartbroken gran said: “This was our youngest granddaughter.

“How have we come to this point where kids can’t have a walk in a park without suffering an unprovoked attack?”
