Two people have been charged with offences that are linked to the investigation into the murder of Abdul Deghayes in Brighton. They were arrested yesterday, on the 16th of May.

The 22-year old victim was found in the passenger seat of a car on February 16th. He has suffered from multiple stab wounds and was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital where he sadly passed away from his injuries.

The pair were charged with drug offences:

“Daniel McLeod, who is already remanded in custody charged with Abdul’s murder, has been further charged with three counts of conspiracy to supply controlled drugs – cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy.”

“Stephen Burns, 54, self-employed, of Lennox Street, Brighton, has been charged with assisting an offender (in relation to the murder offence) and three counts of conspiracy to supply controlled drugs – cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy.”
