Witnesses see friend stabbed to death in car- Acquitted !!
SY was a back seat passenger in a friend’s car when suddenly he produced a knife and stabbed his friend to death whilst the vehicle was still being driven along the Pretoria Road in Small Heath. There were two other passengers in the vehicle who witnessed this murder [they gave evidence at the trial]. SY escaped to a friend’s house where he disposed of his clothes and the murder weapon [his friend was later arrested and confessed to disposing of his items]. SY sought refuge in a girlfriend’s house and confessed to her about the Murder [she also gave evidence at the trial]. SY was then taken to Telford, where he was subsequently arrested and signed a pocket note book of a police officer admitting to the stabbing. Despite the overwhelming evidence against SY he was found not guilty after trial.
