Javauntee Campbell, 16, of William Morley Close, East Ham, was found guilty of the manslaughter of 29-year-old Rashid Naeem by a jury at the Old Bailey earlier today.
Karlton Burton, 15, also of William Morley Close, East Ham, was found guilty of murder in the same court yesterday.
Both boys can now be named after the judge decided that it was in the public interest to lift a court order banning their identification due to their ages.A quaint old English murder, to be sure!
Campbell and Burton have been remanded in custody ahead of their sentencing in September.No doubt the excuses are already drafted and just need the names to be added in.
I’m betting ‘ADHD’ or even ‘autism’ will make an appearance.
