Two Louis Vuitton models murdered their rival out of fear that he was becoming too popular, according to police in the United Kingdom.
London police said that the two men were charged with the fatal stabbing of 25-year-old Harry Uzoka.
George Koh, 24, of York Way, Camden, and Jonathan Okigbo, 23, of Trevithick House, Kentish Town, both appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
They were both charged with the murder of Uzoka from west London.
Koh was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon.
Both men were remanded into custody and will appear at the Old Bailey for trial.
Uzoka was employed by the Premier Model Management and recently appeared on ads for Zara and Mercedes.
Koh has modeled for major brands, including Louis Vuitton and Paul Smith.
According to the police investigation, a fight broke out at Ollgar House in Ollgar Close, during which Uzoka was assaulted and stabbed.
Uzoka managed to stagger out of Ollgar House before collapsing on Old Oak Road.
He was rushed to a hospital, where he was declared dead from a single stab wound.
