Teenagers who lured schoolboy into 'Trojan Horse' trap before stabbing him to death jailed

During the trial, the court heard how Michael was lured to his death as part of a plan sinisterly executed by the two teens. Michael was lured into a “Trojan Horse” trap on the evening of September 3 last year by boys he thought were his friends, the Old Bailey was told. This was a sustained attack.” Commenting on the sentencing, Michael’s mother, Leisa, said: “I am pleased that justice has been served on the youths that killed my son, Michael, nothing will bring my son back but at least these two youths will not be able to plan and kill any other children in the near future.” Detective Chief Inspector Mark Wrigley, who led the investigation into the case, added: “It is never a good day when two teenagers are sentenced for murder, however, both of those imprisoned are callous in nature and unremorseful about violently taking away Michael’s life.
