A young male model has been stabbed to death in the UK allegedly because of a row over a woman. 

A court has heard that 25-year-old Harry Uzoka was stabbed outside his home in Shepherd's Bush in west London by the accused George Koh, 24. 

According to the hearing, Koh, who denies murder, was called "a fake" on Instagram by Mr Uzoka who arranged to fight him after finding out Koh allegedly slept with Mr Uzoka's model girlfriend Ruby Campbell, BBC reports

The men are said to have arranged to meet for a "confrontation" through social media, and confronted each other with three peers: two friends of Koh and one a friend of Mr Uzoka. 

The court heard that Koh's group showed up to the confrontation with knives, including a machete, while Mr Uzoka's group came armed with dumbbell bars. 

Prosecutor Richard Horwell told the hearing on Monday it is not difficult to work out which side won. He said Mr Uzoka's group were outnumbered and stood "little chance" against their opponents. 

Koh was joined by Merse Dikanda and Jonathan Okigbo, both 24. The two deny murder of Mr Uzoka, despite Koh handing himself in to police and telling officers he had acted in self-defence during the altercation. 

"I feared that he would kill me or cause me serious injury," Koh reportedly told police in defence of his actions. 

The trial will continue.
