A TEENAGER wanted for the murder of a man in Islington has been extradited from Spain and appeared in a British court.

Jack Stevens, aged 19, was arrested on a European Arrest Warrant when he was tracked down to Spain. He is accused of the murder of Nashon Esbrand, 27, of Upper Holloway, who was stabbed in Islington on August 24, 2017. He died from his injuries in hospital the next day.

A warrant for Stevens’s arrest was issued, and the UK’s National Crime Agency, Metropolitan Police and Spanish authorities traced him.

He was arrested and on August 30 he was extradited to the UK.

Stevens appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court yesterday (August 31) charged with murder. He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday (September 3).

Two men – one 18 the other 20 – have previously been jailed for life for Nashon’s murder. A 16-year-old boy was also jailed after admitting murder.
