A murder investigation was launched after a man died in a nursing home five and a half years after being stabbed in south London.

Detectives from the Met Crime Command are now investigating the death.
A Met spokeswoman said: “A post-mortem examination carried out on February 16 gave a provisional cause of death as a penetrating chest injury.
“The death is believed to be related to an incident that occurred in Triangle Place, SW4, on October 14, 2016, when Jamel was 17 years old.”
In 2016, Jamel Boyce’s parents posted a photo of his son from his hospital bed in intensive care.
Mr. Boyce’s family is being supported by specially trained officers.
His mother, Pansy Boyce, told BBC London that his death was a shock.
“We didn’t expect it,” she said. “He was very ill for the last five years. At first it was like going to the hospital and talking to a dead person.
“But he got better. After the tracheostomy was removed, he was hopeful that he could be here for a few more years.”
“We were looking forward to speech and language therapy so he could learn to speak again.
“That’s why it’s really shocking.”
In May 2018, Tyrese Osei-Kofi was detained for 10 years after being found guilty of intentionally injuring Mr. Boyce.
The 18-year-old was found not guilty of attempted murder following a trial at the Old Bailey.
