Family of murdered Berkhamsted 18-year-old pay tribute

The family of 18-year-old Jordan Carter, who was murdered in Berkhamsted on Friday night, have paid tribute to him.

Jordan lived with his mother Nicola in Berkhamsted and two younger brothers – 13 year old Leon and 17 year old Connor.

Mum Nicola said:

“Jordan was a joker and would always have us laughing with the things he said. He had a great sense of humour.

“He loved his music and was a loving, kind hearted and family orientated boy.”

Jordan’s father Ian, who lives in Hemel Hempstead, added: “Jordan had a heart of gold and was very loyal to his family.

“He teased his younger brothers a lot but was also really good to them. He was always good with younger children and I always thought that he would be a wonderful father one day in the future.”

Jordan’s family is being supported by specialist officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit and have asked that the media respect their privacy at this time.

What happened?

Police were called by the ambulance service to Westfield Road in Berkhamsted at 10.17pm on Friday to reports of a man suffering a serious leg injury. Despite the best efforts of paramedics, Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

Three teenagers – two 14 year old boys from Watford and a 16 year old girl from Hemel Hempstead - have been charged with joint enterprise murder.

They appeared at Hatfield Remand Court today (Tuesday) and have been remanded in custody. They are due to appear at Luton Crown Court on Thursday (March 1).
