Killers of 15 year old Nigerian boy, Junior Nkwelle, found guilty of manslaughter

The 14 year old girl who ordered the stabbing of 15 year old Nigerian boy, Junior Nkwelle, for being ‘disrespectful’ was found guilty of manslaughter yesterday March 1, 2013. 

Junior and his friends had been playing football near his home when an argument broke out. The teenage girl claimed Junior had insulted her during the argument. She then called her 16 year old boyfriend on the phone to a housing estate in Brixton and ordered him to ‘teach Junior a lesson’. The boyfriend thrust a carving knife once into Junior's chest, killing him. This happened in September 2012.

The teenage girl and her boyfriend were cleared of murder by a jury yesterday, but they are facing long prison terms after being  found guilty of manslaughter.

 Witnesses said they heard the girl boasting that she had arranged for someone to stab the teenager and she later went home to fetch a kitchen knife.

When her boyfriend arrived on the scene, he was handed the blade and used it to stab Junior once, piercing his heart and lung.

The youngster collapsed yards from his housing estate home in September last year and was pronounced dead an hour later.
 
Prosecutor Jonathan Turner QC said the argument ‘was stupid  and trivial and completely unnecessary’.

‘It was loud enough to be heard by neighbours,’ he added. ‘Words were said, voices were raised and threats were made.

‘She thought that Junior had insulted her or been less than respectful to her. She was very angry and determined that he should be punished – indeed stabbed – to put things right.

‘She called up her boyfriend and was heard to tell Junior that she had arranged for somebody to come and stab him.’

Mr Turner added: ‘He (the defendant) was encouraged and requested by her to come and do this. Indeed, to use an old-fashioned phrase, was set up by her to do this.’ 

The now 17-year-old killer, from Herne Hill, South London, claimed he was acting as a peacemaker and knifed Junior in self-defence.

Both he and the girl, from Brixton, were given anonymity during the trial. They can't be named because of legal reasons. They will be sentenced on April 5.

Such a bummer. RiP to the unfortunate lad.

The sacred age of '18' I seriously doubt whether they did not know what they were doing..

The way these kids grow up today is so so fast and the kind of bitterness and anger they carry inside them..

I think the media and the way modern society has destroyed the very essence of the family unit leads to this

But for them to run under the age of '18'. I don't know whether that a day can be used to signify mental independence and maturity

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

Smh... So young yet so filled with hate and vile. Imagine a 14 and a 17 year old going this far just because of something that trivial. I hope after their sentencing their years in prison would make them changed people. They deserve a death penalty in my regard.

This is cold blood murder, they were not defending themselves instead it was done out of spite, maybe cos he is black. They should be given the murder sentence. This is like Д pat on the back to both of them.

What sort of talk is that, can you hear urself? That a human being should be put in hot oil and hung for vultures. How do you process such an evil thought? Do you know thinking like that makes you almost as bad as the stabber. Young people everywere are so full of hate its scary. Just check blog comments and you'll c how bad its gootten. Just cos someeone has an alternative view people wish them dead.

I think we should check ourselves b4 we judge those teenagers in the uk, we are too foul mouthed and having such evil thoughts towards people you don't know doesn't make it right or better

It only shows that racism is still given a seat on the high table in the UK. Why hide the murderers identity & reveal the victim's? Shouldn't it be the other way round. As if that wasn't enough they changed a planned murder to manslaughter. God who is the perfect judge is above watching & He'll give a perfect judgement & punishment to the murderers & the jury alike. God help us in this wicked world.

this is serious. At a tender age both of dem had started commiting murder, but sha it not dre fault if not for we africans that we dont get satisfied wit what we have in our own father land. Nevertheless those kids will dance to the tone.

Ha ba, the race of the defendants was not disclosed in the article. Therefore racism is not the issue here. I am very sure that defendants are black. Nigerian kids stab a lot in UK. Something need to be done to stem the rate at which our kids go on. Majority of the gang members are black kids, mostly with Nigerian heritage.

Godly children wn be raised anywhere in the world. The responsibility lies with the parents. Instill the fear of God into your child from very young age and don't allow western lifestyles. Adoption of westernised lifestyle leads to such problems.

It doesn't always mean she got her behaviour from her parent, In some circumstances but not all. These days these kids learn a lot from their friend and company they keep. Especially those involved with gangsters. UK laws allows offenders to escape justice most times. Why not find them guilty of murder charge? stabbing someone through the heart is premeditated murder to me. The defender knows that his actions will kill the victim. That is murder.

Anonymous said...

Why are people on this blog assuming the killers are white?! They're probably not releasing much info because they're under 18. People shouting racism and reduction of charges from murder to manslaughter. If it had happened in this country nobody would have gotten justice unless the boy was a governor's son. People would have been shouting it was devil's work. We're such bloody hypocrites in this country, calling each other tribalistic names and then making noise about racism. Please wait for them to say the girl is white and ordered him killed because she was racist before jumping to conclusions.

Where do you live? Stupid person. You fit no get house sef. What relevant does housing estate has to do with this? People that live I big houses in UK may have thesame experience. It is what kids do and who they get involve with that matters. So, alan poser it is not council flat issue. There are lots of people who live council accommodation that were able to bring their kids up without getting killed.
