Murder charge and second suspect arrested over teen house party stabbing

A man has been charged with the double murder of two teenagers at a house party in Milton Keynes.

Charlie Chandler has been charged with the murder of 17-year-old Dominic Ansah and Benjamin Rice after the pair were stabbed at a birthday party in Milton Keynes.

Cops have also charged the 21-year-old with two counts of attempted murder and have arrested a second suspect.

The second suspect is believed to be an unnamed 22-year-old man from Milton Keynes and is being held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder in connection with the attack.

The tragic incident occurred on October 20th in a "shocking altercation" on a quiet housing estate in Milton Keynes, Bucks.

Police were called to the home in Ashcroft at around midnight and detectives believe around 15 to 20 people were present.

It is believed a brawl broke out after gatecrashers turned up at the party just before emergency services were called.

Dominic is thought to have died from a stab wound to the back while Ben was knifed in the chest.

One boy was pronounced dead at the scene while the other passed away in hospital.

Two other males suffered serious injures on the night, a 17-year-old and a 23-year-old, but cops confirmed they were not life threatening.

Chilling pictures of the tragic attack show blood on the door of the home where teens had gathered to celebrate.

Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Hunter of Thames Valley Police said: "Tragically, as a result of this incident, one 17-year-old boy died of his injuries at the scene and a second boy, also 17, was taken to hospital, where sadly he also died.

"Two other males, one aged 17 and one aged 23, were also injured as a result of this incident, which occurred at a private house party at the address.

"Clearly this is a dreadful incident and we are in the very early stages of the investigation.

"We have deployed significant resources and it is, and will continue to be, a fast moving investigation led by our Major Crime Unit.

"Our thoughts go out to the families of the victims and we have deployed specially trained officers to support them."
