A man has denied murdering a 41-year-old man who was stabbed to death in a YMCA hostel in Wimbledon.

Mongo Bolili, 33, of Merton, is accused of stabbing Paul Dalton at the accommodation on Wimbledon Broadway.

Mr Dalton was found with stab injuries in his room in the early hours of January 13.

A post-mortem examination established the cause of death as a stab wound to the leg.

On Tuesday, Bolili pleaded not guilty to murder during a hearing at the Old Bailey.

Ian Matu, 27, denied perverting the course of justice by concealing a knife.

A plea of not guilty to perverting the course of justice was indicated on behalf of a third defendant, Danny Webster, 30, who was not in court.

All the defendants, who were residents at the YMCA, were remanded into custody.

Judge Mark Lucraft QC set a provisional trial date of May 9 2022, with a further hearing on September 3 this year.
