A man who faced an unprecedented five trials over four years for the shooting of a mother-of-nine and her nephew has been found guilty of murder.

Annie Ekofo, 53, and Bervil Ekofo, 21, were killed in their home in East Finchley, north London, in 2016.

Obina Ezeoke first went on trial in 2017 but it collapsed, while juries in two more failed to reach verdicts and the other was halted by coronavirus.

At his fifth trial, the 28-year-old was found guilty of two counts of murder.

An Old Bailey jury convicted Ezeoke by a majority of 11 to one after deliberating for 41 hours over eight days.

Ezeoke will be sentenced on 1 October.
