Six teenagers charged with plotting to steal taxi driver’s vehicles are to face trial for the murder of a driver who was fatally stabbed in his car.

Gabriel Bringye, 37, was discovered collapsed having suffered a knife wound inside his cab on Jarrow Road, Tottenham, about 7.20pm on February 17.

Mr Bringye, a Romanian national who was planning his wedding for later this year, was pronounced dead at the scene 40 minutes later.

On Wednesday, a number of youths, aged between 15 and 18, appeared at the Old Bailey for a hearing in the case.

All six defendants are charged with the murder of Mr Bringye and conspiring together to rob taxi drivers of their vehicles on February 17.

Two 16-year-olds are also charged with robbing a teenage girl of an iPhone on the same date.

A 15-year-old youth is accused of receiving stolen goods in relation to the iPhone.

During the hearing, Judge Anthony Leonard QC set a trial of up to 10 weeks for November 29 at the Old Bailey.

None of the defendants were asked to enter pleas to the charges.
