Couple accused of supermarket murder
The murder of a man in a British grocery store because he cut in line yesterday was allegedly perpetrated by a couple in their late teens, according to police. The details are still a little confusing, somehow involving both a fight about cutting in line and mistaken identity.
A couple have been accused of murdering a man who died after he was assaulted in a supermarket in southwest London, police said on Friday.
Kevin Tripp, 57, died in hospital late on Wednesday night after suffering a head injury during an incident at the Sainsbury's store in Colliers Wood, Merton on Tuesday evening.
Media reports said Tripp had been attacked in a case of mistaken identity after a row about queue-jumping.
On Thursday Tony Virasami, 37, appeared at Wimbledon magistrates court charged with his murder. He was remanded in custody until September 18.
His partner, Antoinette Richardson, 37, has also been charged with murder and is due appear before Sutton magistrates court later on Friday.
A 19-year-old man who was arrested on Tuesday for threatening behaviour has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
