A 37-year-old man, named as Paul Martin O’Shea, has been charged with the murder of two men whose bodies were found in a flat fire in King’s Cross.

The Islington man is due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court today, after being charged with arson with intent. The charge comes after a blaze broke out on the third floor of Stelfox House, in Penton Rise, last Friday evening.

Leandro Da Silva, 47, from Finsbury Park, north London, was found dead with 51-year-old Othamane Majdouline. Post-mortem examinations are being carried out.
