Two men have been charged with the murder of a Croydon man killed during a suspected break-in at his girlfriend's house.

Sam Monteith, 31, of no fixed abode, Paul West, 29, from Slough, are accused of stabbing to death Danny Gough in the early hours of December 14, 2010.

Mr Gough, 24, died of shock and haemorrhage from multiple wounds after being attacked in Stockbury Road, Woodside.

Mr Monteith and Mr West appeared at Croydon Magistrates' Court this morning.

Stephen Dougherty, 34, of no fixed abode, has also charged with the murder. He appeared at Camberwell Magistrates Court in November and will stand trial at the Old Bailey on July 1.

Three other men and a woman were also arrested as part of the investigation into Mr Gough's death, but no further action is being taken against them.
