A 15-year-old boy has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of two teenage boys at a house party.

Dom Ansah and Ben Gillham-Rice were fatally stabbed by masked attackers at a house party in Emerson Valley, Milton Keynes on October 19.

Thames Valley Police confirmed a 15-year-old boy was arrested on Thursday and has been charged with two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

He will appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

23-year-old Ryan Brown and a 17-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons were also stabbed in the attack last month and were left with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Two people who were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender have been released under investigation.

Three other people have already been charged in relation to the incident.

Earl Bevans, 22, of no fixed address, Charlie Chandler, 21, from Bletchley, and a 16-year-old boy who cannot be named are accused of two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The three previously charged suspects have been remanded in custody and will appear at Luton Crown Court in January.

A 27-year-old man who was arrested on October 26 on suspicion of conspiracy to murder has since been released under investigation
