Three men have been charged with murder over the death of Tyler Donnelly, who was stabbed in the neck in a west London park last Thursday.

The 19-year-old was found unresponsive by joggers in Hanworth Park, Feltham, shortly before 8am on January 25.

He had left his home at around 9.20pm the previous day and rode his bike along Elmwood Avenue before entering the park.

It is believed that Tyler, whose family lives nearby, was assaulted and stabbed while there.

A post-mortem on Saturday found he had died as a result of a stab wound to the neck.

Following the launch of a murder investigation, three men were arrested on Sunday.

Daniel Matos, 21, Keith Preddie, 32, and 27-year-old Joshua Cowley were charged with murder today.

They are due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

Following the news of the teenager’s death, Deputy Chief Inspector Brian Howie said: ‘Tyler’s family and friends are inconsolable after receiving the worst possible news imaginable – our thoughts are with them and they are being supported by specialist officers.’

The Met continues to appeal for anyone with information to get in touch.
