Oliver Olly Stephens Age
Oliver ‘Olly’ Stephens, 13, was killed on January 3 in the Bugs Bottom field in the Emmer Green suburb of Reading in a case where police said to scare us as a society.
Reading Crown Court had previously heard that a 14-year-old girl convinced Olly to go to the park, where he was “ambushed” and stabbed to death by the two boys.
One boy was convicted of misleading the judiciary, but the other was found not guilty. All judgments were unanimous in the jury.
The girl and the older teenager had both previously pleaded guilty of manslaughter. Due to its age, none of the three can be named for legal reasons.
The court heard that the two male attackers had “complaints” with Olly, while the girl allegedly described any violence against him leading up to his death as “karma”.
This afternoon, the jury found the two boys guilty of murder after pondering a little over 18 hours.
The older boy was also found guilty of perverting the course of justice by discarding the clothes he was wearing during the incident.
The attackers left Olly with stab wounds to the chest and back after a brief scuffle at the scene.
The jury was told that both had “complaints” with Olly for “sniffing” her, while the girl reportedly referred to any violence against him prior to his death as “karma”.
The then 13-year-old younger boy stabbed Olly with a knife, while the older boy had argued with him, as the court had previously heard.
The 14-year-old girl who was present at the scene of the attack had previously admitted manslaughter together with the older boy.
The younger boy had also admitted that he perverted the judiciary by disposing of clothes worn at the time of the killing, while the older boy admitted the same offense for deleting cell phone apps.
None of the three can be named for legal reasons.
Jurors were told that they had shared several messages on Snapchat in the days before Olly’s death, showing hostility towards him.
The girl said in a message to one of the defendants: “Karma – he (Olly) deserves all of this.”
The older boy also said, “I actually hate the boy with a passion – if I saw him now I would probably kill him.”
Prosecutor Alison Morgan QC had said that Olly “unknowingly ran into an ambush.”
Ms. Morgan QC said, “(The girl) lured Olly to the location of the attack, a place called Bugs Bottom, and she lured him so that the attack could be carried out by the two defendants. The defendants were motivated by perceived grievances with Olly. ‘
A woman who was at the scene said in a testimony that a series of punches were thrown, despite the boys admitting that Olly had beaten the fight. It was during the fight that the younger boy entered and stabbed Olly.
Ms. Morgan went on to say of the witness, “She could see blood coming out of his chest and hear sucking noises which she knew were not a good sound as no air was getting into Olly’s lungs.
“She noticed the shock was on and knew he was in cardiac arrest and started the resuscitation.”
It was also heard that the boys “encouraged” others to find local news after the incident.
The court heard that the older boy sent a message to a friend: “Me and my boy hit him, but my boy pulled back and fucked him.”
Ms. Morgan said, “There was no sign of regret and no indication that he was in any way shocked.”
