Man found guilty of Canning Town teenager's murder
A man has been convicted of the murder of Canning Town teenager Danny O'Shea but his nine co-defendants were cleared of the charges.
Nugent Rowe, 30, of St Thomas' Drive in Pinner, was found guilty following a trial at the Old Bailey. He will be sentenced on Friday.
Danny was 18 when he was stabbed in the neck near Royal Victoria DLR station just before 6.15pm on December 2, 2011.
He staggered to nearby Boreham Avenue but collapsed - just yards from his mother's house.
CPR was performed but he died at the scene.
The court heard how the attack was planned as a revenge for the robbery of a mobile phone. It was discovered Danny was not involved in that robbery.
All 10 defendants denied the charges but Rowe was found guilty by the jury on Thursday.
Top sports agent Christopher Nathaniel, 40, and his business partner, 34-year-old Paul Broadi, were cleared of the murder and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
Also cleared of the same charges were Scott Marius, 43, of Clifton Villas in W9; Kevin Richards, 33, of North Circular Road, NW10; and David Hylton, 48, Babington Court, Orde Hall Street in central London.
O'Neil Wareham, 30, Andrew Johnson, 36, Ferron Perue, 24, and Paul Johnson, 34, all of Toorack Road in Harrow Weald, were also found not guilty.
