Two people have pleaded guilty to charges in connection with the death of Derick Mulondo in the Cambridge Road Estate in Kingston earlier this year.

Shauna Doyle, 23, of Burrit Road, in Kingston, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and possession of an offensive weapon.

Eric Wertz, 45, of Comber Road, in New Malden, pleaded guilty to attempted grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon.

Both appeared at Kingston Crown Court yesterday (December 4) and will appear for sentencing on January 5, 2018.

Mr Mulondo, 38, was found with stab injuries after police were called to a disturbance at 6pm on June 6.

Police, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended, but despite their efforts Mr Mulondo was pronounced dead at the scene.

Doyle and Wertz were arrested that day and were originally charged with murder, but the court has accepted their pleas.

A 51-year-old man was also arrested during the investigation but released with no further action.
