Shortly after three men, including Mirko, attended hospital where the 31-year-old was later pronounced dead.

An investigation was launched by detectives from the Specialist Crime Command following the incident.

On December 19, Leone Davies, 19, of Twickenham and Justin Romano, 19, of Kingston were both jailed for life with a minimum term of 20 years having been convicted of murder and two counts of wounding with intent.

Police established that Davies left the scene and drove to a woman’s home.

The woman, Eve Carter, 19, subsequently helped to dispose of his phone in the hope of distancing him for the attack.

However, detectives were able to locate it before analysing its contents.

Detectives made a series of arrests in connection with their investigation resulting in seven people initially being charged.

Eve Carter pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and will be sentenced on a later date.

Detective Chief Inspector Geoff Grogan, the Senior Investigating Officer, said: “Our thoughts today remain with Mirko Naramcic’s family and friends as they continue to struggle with his tragic loss.

“Mirko had spent the day drinking and enjoying the company of friends.

“His night ended with him being violently attacked and ultimately losing his life.

“This case, once again, highlights what can happen when people go out armed with knives without thinking about the consequences.”

A post-mortem examination held at Kingston Mortuary on March 19, 2022, gave Mirko’s cause of death as a stab injury.

A spokesperson for Metropolitan Police said: “Two men have been jailed for murder after detectives used CCTV and phone analysis to track their movements on the night of a fatal stabbing.

“On 17 March 2022, an argument at a petrol station culminated in a fight between two groups, leaving three people with stab injuries.

“On Tuesday, 19 December, Leone Davies, 19 of Twickenham and Justin Romano, 19 of Kingston were both jailed for life with a minimum term of 20 years having been convicted of murder and two counts of wounding with intent.

“Officers attended the scene but no victims could be found. Shortly afterwards three men, including 31-year-old Mirko, attended hospital having sustained stab injuries.

“Despite the efforts of medical staff, Mirko died in hospital. A post-mortem examination held at Kingston Mortuary on 19 March 2022 gave cause of death as a stab injury.

“An investigation was launched by detectives from the Specialist Crime Command.

“They quickly established that Davies left the scene and drove to a woman’s home. She – Eve Carter – subsequently helped to dispose of his phone in the hope of distancing him for the attack.

“However, detectives were able to locate it before analysing its contents.

“Over the coming weeks, detectives made a series of arrests in connection with their investigation resulting in seven people initially being charged.
