Man, 31, charged with Toni-Ann's murder.

A 31-YEAR-OLD man was charged last night with the murder of seven-year-old Toni-Ann Byfield, Scotland Yard said.

Joel Smith, of no fixed address, was also charged with the murder of Anthony Pinnock, 41, also known as Tony Byfield and Bertram Byfield, then believed to be Toni-Ann's dad.

Smith will appear before magistrates in London today but police would not reveal which court.

Two men, aged 22 and 30, who were arrested earlier this week in connection with the murders were bailed to return to north London police stations pending further inquiries.

A 28-year-old woman who was arrested in Merseyside on suspicion of assisting an offender and being concerned with the supply of class A drugs was also bailed.

Pinnock and Tony-Ann were gunned down in Pinnock's bedsit in Harlesden, London, in September 2003. It was thought he was killed because of a drug debt and Toni-Ann was murdered so that she could not identify the gunman.

Following their deaths it emerged Pinnock was not in fact Toni-Ann's natural father
