The 19-year-old, from the Caribbean island Anguilla, was stabbed to death while passing time in Wolverhampton’s Stowlawn Playing Fields off Laburnum Road near Bilston on November 13 last year.

The two 12-year-olds convicted of murdering him with a machete will be sentenced at a rescheduled hearing on September 27 at Nottingham Crown Court where the trial was held, due to the defendants being at secure units outside the West Midlands.
