article imageStabbed to death for ‘dissing’ a girl

By Alexander Baron     Apr 5, 2013 in Crime
London - Junior Nkwelle was not yet 16 when he was stabbed to death on a South London housing estate. Now his killer and the girl who put him up to it are paying the price. Of sorts.
This story is becoming so repetitive that it is hardly news anymore. Remember the so-called honey trap murder from a few years back? Although Junior Nkwelle has suffered the same fate as Shakilus Townsend, his killer and the siren who lured him to his death have been convicted only of manslaughter, which in view of their young ages means they will serve considerably less time than Samantha Joseph and her accomplices.
Having said that, this was more of a spur of the moment crime, at least for Marc Tulloch, who wielded the knife. When Cherelle McKenzie-Jackson considered she'd been dissed by Junior, she brought in her boyfriend to teach him respect. He ended up stabbing him to death.
Is this girl worth killing for? Cherelle McKenzie-Jackson was  dissed  by  Junior Nkwelle  and goade...
Is this girl worth killing for? Cherelle McKenzie-Jackson was "dissed" by Junior Nkwelle, and goaded Marc Tulloch until he killed him.
Metropolitan Police
When the pair were sentenced yesterday - Friday - at the Central Criminal Court, she was still only fourteen. They were originally charged with murder, but their trial ended February 28 with a conviction for the lesser crime.
At the sentencing hearing yesterday, Judge Richard Hone QC took the slightly unusual but by no means unprecedented step of releasing their names, due apparently to the nature of the crime.
He told McKenzie-Jackson: "You have an extremely low IQ but that provides little mitigation for the seriousness of what you orchestrated that evening”.
According to the BBC, there were 13 teenagers murdered in London in 2009, down considerably from the previous year when Mayor Boris Johnson decided it was time something was done to tackle the underlying causes of the problem.
