A CARER accused of murdering a man outside an East End nightclub has now been charged with perverting the course of justice.
Two more men have now also been charged with helping 30-year-old Andrew Denty, of Greenham Close, Southwark hide a MAC10 machine gun which they believe was used to gun down Curtis Smith outside Club Red in Butcher Row, Limehouse last summer.
Emmanuel Okot, 25, of City Walk, Bermondsey and George Ogaba, 19, of Leontine Close, Peckham were both charged last month with conspiring to hide the weapon and with perverting the course of justice.
Denty was arrested after he handed himself into a police station last July and was charged with the murder of Curtis Smith. He has now also been charged with the other two offences.
