A teenager was jailed for 13 years today for stabbing a schoolboy to death a month after he was sent on ‘a knife awareness course.’
Walker Sesay, 19, was sentenced for stabbing Che Labastide-Wellington, 17, through the heart outside of a 16-year-old girl's birthday party on November 7, 2015, in Harrow, northwest London.He seems to have learned something then, at least!
This is the trial featured here. We now learn that it was 'a feud between neighbouring estates in north-west London' and not just a birthday party gatecrashed by gangs, as first reported.
Sesay and six co-defendants were acquitted of murder by a jury after 42 hours and 24 minutes’ deliberations.
But Sesay alone was found guilty of manslaughter.Why was joint enterprise not considered?
