Daniel Lena, widely known as Unknown T has been charged with the murder of 20-year-old Steven Narvaez-Jara. The victim was found with fatal stab wounds at a flat in Islington, North London on New Years Day last year and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The deadly altercation is said to have taken place at a house party in Islington in celebration of the New Year. Unknown T and two other men were arrested in the days following the incident but were consequently released on bail pending further investigation. Another 20-year old man was found with non-life threatening stab injuries nearby but has since recovered.
The young rapper first gained attention after dropping his hit single ‘Homerton B’ which reached #48 on the U.K Singles Chart in October 2018. Following the success of the single, he signed with Universal Music Group and has had a promising start to 2019. He has performed at the O2 Arena for Drake’s Assassination Vacation Tour back in April and was also scheduled to perform at BBC 1Xtra’s Summer In Ibiza 2019 in August.
Unknown T and one other suspect have been charged with murder and violent disorder, with the third suspect being charged only with violent disorder. The three men are due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court later this week.
