A third man has been arrested after two teenagers were stabbed to death at a house party in Milton Keynes.
The 27 – year-old was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder on Saturday and remains in custody, Thames Valley Police said.
It is the third arrest in connection with the attack after police charged 22 – year-old Earl Bevans and 21 – year-old Charlie Chandler with two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder earlier this week.
A black-eyed and bruised Bevans appeared for a brief hearing at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on Saturday afternoon, where he spoke to confirm his details and that he understood his charges.
He will appear again – alongside Chandler – on Friday.
