Police charge two men with murder and attempted murder....

A NELLY fan was stabbed and later died last Friday (October 18) as the rapper played in California.

Nelly hit Number One in the UK yesterday (October 20) with his single ‘Dilemma’, a duet with Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland.

But the rapper’s Number One was marred by violence at the concert in Chula Vista, California on Friday (October 18).

Thirty-year-old Faitamai Taunuu suffered multiple stab wounds in the attack and he died of his injuries on Saturday. Another fan, Sean Bowers, was also stabbed and is described as in a good condition in hospital.

Police have charged Hank Carl Banegas and Steven Francis TeSam both of Alpine, California, with murder and attempted murder.

An unidentified 16-year-old boy, who has been detained in a juvenile facility, was charged with conspiracy.
