Court: Girl Spoken To As A ‘Significant Witness’

October 24, 2018

A 16-year-old girl on trial for the murder of 17-year-old Bermudian Lyrico Steede was initially spoken to as a ‘significant witness’, according to the latest report from the Nottingham Post.

The report said, “A 16-year-old girl who pleads not guilty to murder with four other defendants was initially a potential significant witness in the case before her arrest, a jury heard.

“The girl had arranged to meet Lyrico Steede in Bulwell, the trial at Nottingham Crown Court has been told.

“During her interview as a witness, she was vague about how the arrangements had been made.

“They sat in the park for about an hour, she had said, and then some people came [about five and all male], they “ran Lyrico down” and stole the iPad she had borrowed from her friend.

“She had also stated she did not recognise any of the males who chased him. And she asserted she went looking for Lyrico afterwards, but could not find him and went straight home as she was worried.

She later heard on the news that someone had been stabbed in Bulwell and realised that it must have been Lyrico, the jury has previously heard.

“They were told she was arrested on suspicion of murder at her home on February 22 this year. She was cautioned and taken to the Bridewell custody suite in Nottingham for questioning.

“Prosecutors allege the teenage girl had lured Lyrico to a dark park in Bulwell. From there he was chased several hundred yards and was only caught when he stumbled, tripped or fell over a low railing in Stock Well. The 17-year-old died five days after he had been stabbed.

“The alleged knife attack was said to have been carried out by four men in the dock – two 17-year-olds males, Kasharn Campbell, 19, of no fixed address, and Remmell Campbell-Miller, 18, of Sneinton Boulevard.”
