Killer child Marcel Grzeszcz stabbed classmate Roberts Buncis more than 70 times on December 12 last year, after luring him to woodland in Fishtoft, near Boston, Lincolnshire, after believing he was a 'snitch'.
The 15-year-old schoolboy drug dealer was unmasked by a High Court judge at Lincoln Crown Court and sentenced to a minimum of 16 years in jail after he murdered his 12-year-old friend before trying to decapitate him in a brutal attack.
He had a history, of course. They always do.
It has been revealed he was also expelled from his previous primary school, St Nicholas Primary School in Boston, Lincolnshire, after threatening a girl with a knife.
Just expelled? No criminal charges?
The defendant then moved to Haven High Academy, where he stayed for around three years, but was excluded for selling drugs both in and out of school. Grzeszcz was then sent to a pupil referral unit where he started the day before Roberts was found dead.
Well, that worked well, eh?
The Latvian-born victim lived with his single-parent father, who urged calm in the aftermath of his death.
Why? Calm is the last thing we should be about the increasing rise in children capable of murder!
Grzeszcz was the school drug dealer at Haven High Academy and was constantly in trouble. It was never explicitly detailed in court, but it is understood he viewed his victim as 'a liability' because his friend knew so much about his illegal activities.
If someone is 'constantly in trouble' why was he at the school in the first place? And why was his family in this country?
Acting on behalf of the Grzeszcz, defence QC Brendan Kelly admitted the violence was 'extraordinary' but submitted it indicated a 'loss of control' from the defendant.
Even the brief can't fall back on anything to excuse this.
