Duo convicted following Bermondsey death
A jury at the Old Bailey cleared two men of shooting dead a night club promoter in Bermondsey.
However, the pair, Michael Campbell, 25, of Jago Walk, SE25, and Bobby Winser, 22, of Eldridge Court, SE16, were convicted of grievous bodily harm towards the victim, Daniel Herbert (right), in the same incident in August 2009.
The court heard Winser and Campbell had been growing cannabis in Winser's home but had repeatedly been burgled of their equipment.
The culprits were a group of local men who were friends with Daniel, 27, althought Daniel was innocent of any involvement.
As the victim walked past Winser's (left) home at 2am on August 17, 2009, following another break-in, the suspects, along with two others, saw him and gave chase.
They caught him at Clements Road and despite Daniel's pleas for help, he was punched kicked and stamped on. He was then shot in the head at close range.
Co-defendents and relatives of Winser, Darren Mitchell, 42, and Doreen Mitchell, 68, both from Brassey Parade in Eastbourne, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice, after they admitted to lying to police over contact with the two men following Daniel's death.
All four will be sentenced at a later date.
In a victim statement, Daniel's mother Androula Herbert, aged 48, said: "The death of my son has left me and my family devastated. I have lost a wonderful son and I will miss having him around every day for the rest of my life.
"I miss our chats and our laughter. I miss our hugs. I miss him saying I love you mum. I miss the sound of his voice, which I worry that I am going to forget in time.
"My family and I will never get over this, but we will try to move on and cherish the time Daniel spent with us.
"The Herbert family cannot express enough our gratitude towards the police investigation team for all the hours of relentless work and dedication they have put in over the last 21 months. We are truly grateful."
