September 15, 2023

Following a 5-week trial at the Old Bailey, Aneurin Brewer has secured the acquittal of his 19-year-old client, who was found not guilty of murder and the alternative of manslaughter.

He was also found not guilty of the attempted murder of a second individual.

Aneurin’s client had been charged with fatally stabbing another young man in the back seven times in the course of a knife fight in a stairwell of a block in Lisson Grove. He also stabbed a second young man in the neck and back causing potentially fatal injuries which the jury concluded had been caused unlawfully but without an intent to kill.
