The murder of Anthony Ford in July of last year results in the convictions of four young teenagers. A sad affair all round.
Defence counsel for all four accused said that they expressed remorse and regret for what had happened.
Brian McConnachie QC, who represented the boy who was 14 when he carried out the murder, described his actions as "a moment of madness which will live with him for the rest of his life."
Neil Murray QC, representing the other boy convicted of murder, described the killer's upbringing as "chaotic" and "worse than anything Dickens could have imagined in Victorian London."
