A man has been charged with the murder of a “loving father” from Romford.  

Quincy Ffrench-Yethman, of Foyle Road in Tottenham, was charged today (May 16) with the murder of Emmanuel Odunlami. 

Emmanuel was found in Gresham Street suffering from a stab wound at 11.30pm on May 1.  

Officers carried out CPR at the scene before the 32-year-old was taken to hospital where he sadly died.   

Ffrench-Yethman, 26, has been remanded in custody and will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court tomorrow (May 17).  

The family of Emmanuel recently paid tribute to him and in a statement, they described him as a "loving father, fiancé, son, brother, family member and friend who was unjustly taken ahead of his time".
