A MAN accused of murdering a drugs baron in a botched stick-up told jurors he has been expecting a normal deal.

Mark Brown, of Woodville Road, Thornton Heath, said he only acted as the link between crack dealer Michael Henry, 39, of Woodville Road, Thornton Heath, and victim Sunny Eze, 33.

Brown, 35, claims Henry stabbed Eze to death during a struggle at a flat in Shooter's Hill on March 4 last year. Brown told the Old Bailey last Friday he arranged a meeting in Old Kent Road with Mr Chibuzo before later heading to Mr Eze's flat.

Eze, who came to the UK from Nigeria in 2007, was stabbed three times. Brown's fingerprints were found on the Eze's car and Henry's mobile phone was found broken by his body, the court heard.

Henry and Brown deny murder, and Brown denies possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.

The trial continues.
