The Hertfordshire police have charged a second teenager in the murder of a 21-year-old man in Hertfordshire town.

Billy Dove, from Hemel Hempstead, died from a stab wound following an incident on Sunday at 1.30 a.m., police said.

The second teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged for the murder and will appear before the Hatfield Remand Court on Wednesday. Meanwhile, another 17-year-old boy was remanded in judicial custody over the murder on Tuesday, reported the Wartford Observer.

Mike Pryce, Chief Inspector for Dacorum, said: "The incident on Saturday night, which resulted in the sad and tragic death of a young man, Billy Dove, has understandably had a traumatic and devastating effect on Billy's family and the people of Hemel Hempstead and our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Billy's family at this time."

The police also said the patrolling activities would be increased in the town centre to reassure the public.

"In Dacorum we have a strong track record of working with our partner agencies, schools and youth groups educating them about the dangers of knife crime and we will continue to work with the relevant parties to continue to educate the people of Dacorum about the dangers of carrying offensive weapons. We are also increasing high visibility patrols in Hemel Hempstead town centre to reassure members of the public," Pryce added.
