Police attended after a call from a neighbour just after 9pm, following reports suggesting a man had fallen from the block in Denyer House, Highgate Road.

The fall caused multiple injuries to Mr Adams, who was rushed to St Mary’s hospital by the London Ambulance Service, where he later died.

His wife, aged 45, and his teenage daughter, were also present in the flat at the time of the incident.

Jamie Cohen, 34, of no fixed address, and three others from Wolverhampton Neil Allen, 26, of Fordhouse Road, Nicola Green, 32 of Oxley Moor Road, and Stephanie Haughton, 35 of Leslie Road, were identified through the course of an investigation by the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command.

The four were arrested and charged with manslaughter, aggravated burglary and burglary in November 2018. Cohen and Haughton were found guilty of burglary.
