Court: Teenagers Found Guilty Of Murder In UK

December 21, 2018

Two teenagers have been found guilty of the murder of 17-year-old Bermudian Lyrico Steede and three other teenagers have been found not guilty of murder, but have been found guilty of manslaughter.

This is according to the latest report from the Nottingham Post, which said, “Two teenagers have been found guilty of the murder of Lyrico Steede. Three other teenagers have been found not guilty of murder, but have been found guilty of manslaughter by a jury.

“Kasharn Campbell, 19, who has no fixed address, and Christian Jameson, 18, of Kirkbride Court, Chilwell, were found guilty of murder.

“A 17-year-old boy – who cannot be identified, and Remmell Campbell-Miller, 18, of Sneinton Boulevard, were found not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter.

“A 16-year-old girl was was also found not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter. She lured Lyrico to a recreation ground off Hempshill Lane in Bulwell. From there he was chased and stabbed. Lyrico Steede was just 17 years old when he died.”.

They were remanded in custody for sentencing on 25 January 2019.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Hayley Williams said: “This was not an attack in the heat of the moment. This was a cold and extremely calculated attack on a teenage boy with the clear intention of stabbing him multiple times.

“They carefully coordinated on exactly where and when they would attack him and made efforts to conceal their movements, including disposing of phones and getting taxis from unlinked addresses.

“It set up a scenario where four young men who were armed and ready to commit extreme violence had the element of surprise against one unsuspecting victim. Sadly for Lyrico, he didn’t stand a chance. Even when he tried to run away they chased him down and attacked him and left him with fatal injuries.

“Anyone who carries out a sustained attack of this severity couldn’t fail to know that it is likely their victim would die. His injuries were so severe that the pathologist determined they were impossible to survive.

“The attackers then showed an a utter lack of remorse or empathy for the devastation caused to Lyrico’s family and friends – and even bragged about what they had done in a drill music video within days of carrying out the attack.

“The girl effectively acted as a honey trap for Lyrico, ultimately luring him to his death. Today’s verdict means the jury accepts all five defendants were involved in the plot which resulted in Lyrico’s death and that Campbell and Jameson murdered him.”
