TWO men have appeared in court charged with the murder of Genson Courtney in Greenwich.
The 23-year-old, a stepson of Plumstead ex-gangster Dave Courtney, was found by police in Banning Street on July 3 last year in a black Volkswagen Golf and suffering from gunshot wounds.
Mr Courtney, also known as Genson Pinto, was taken by ambulance to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3.43am.
A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head.
