A teenager guilty of stabbing a 15-year-old to death committed the murder just hours after appearing in court accused of attacking a gas man with a knife.Incredibly, he got bail despite the unprovoked nature of the attack:
Earlier that day McLeod had appeared at Camberwell Youth Court accused of a violent attack on a gas man who had come to service the boiler. He was due to go out when the gas man arrived, and injured the technician using a bread knife and threw a brick at his van, the court was told.
McLeod was given an eight-month detention and training order for the attack.At least the judge in this case decided not to let him remain anonymous:
After the verdict was given on Monday, Judge Gerald Gordon lifted a court order so that the teenager could be publicly named.He’ll be sentenced for the killing in March along with several others.
One to watch…
