TWO brothers were today due to appear in court charged with the murder of Liverpool FC fan Alex Jarmay in London.
The 26-year-old, from Bromborough, was knifed outside Bar Uno in north London on Saturday night after travelling to the capital to watch the Reds’ Wembley clash with Cardiff.
As the first picture of Mr Jarmay was released to the ECHO, Scotland Yard detectives last night charged brothers Damian Beck, 23, and Paul Beck, 28, with murder.
The two men, of Spring Place, Kentish Town, north London, were set to appear before Highbury Corner magistrates today.
Two other men, aged 25 and 17, arrested in connection with the murder were last night bailed until April ahead of further inquiries.
A post-mortem revealed the former Wirral Grammar School pupil died from a single stab wound to the chest.
Tributes have continued to pour in for Mr Jarmay from fellow Liverpool FC fans and on a page set up on Facebook.
One woman, who claimed to have been at the scene, wrote: “I can’t get into my head why some sick monster purposely would hurt an innocent young man.
“My heart broke as I watched his poor brother and friends in complete shock while that young man lay on the floor helpless.
“I cant imagine what the Jarmay family are going through and my heart and thoughts go out to you.”
Other football fans put aside sporting rivalries to post tributes to Alex.
A Cardiff fan said: “RIP Alex, I wished you could have witnessed probably the greatest cup final ever.”
DCI Matt Bonner, from Met police, said: “This was a tragic incident which has resulted in a young man losing his life.
“Our sympathies are with Alex’s family and friends and I would like to assure everyone my team is working tirelessly to identify those responsible.”
