A 19-year-old appeared by video link before Medway magistrates charged with the murder of a Gillingham teenager.
Victor Maibvisira, of St John’s Road, Gillingham faces one count of murder and one count of affray.
He appeared at court this morning for a short hearing. He has not entered pleas at this stage.
Officers launched a murder enquiry after being called to East Street, Gillingham, at 8.10pm on Friday, October 6, where 17-year-old Kyle Yule, from Gillingham, was stabbed to death.
A number of people were reported to be causing criminal damage to a silver Renault Clio shortly before Kyle was stabbed and later died in hospital.
Maibvisira was arrested by police on Tuesday in Woolwich, south east London.
A 15-year-old boy, a 17-year-old boy, and a 20-year-old man, all from the Gillingham area, were arrested on Wednesday this week.
The 15-year-old has since been released under investigation. The two others remain in custody.
Three others from Gillingham, aged 15, 16 and 18, have all been bailed until November.
A 20-year-old man, also from Gillingham and who was also arrested, has been released under investigation.
Maibvisira will appear at Maidstone Crown Court on Tuesday next week. He has been remanded in custody.
