Teenager in shock’ during fatal stabbing
A British teenager accused of killing Bermudian youngster Lyrico Steede said he saw the fatal stabbing, but was not involved.
The 17-year-old defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said he was “frozen in shock” as co-accused Kasharn Campbell stabbed Mr Steede several times.
The defendant told Nottingham Crown Court on Friday: “I told Kasharn, ‘You didn’t need to do that’.
“I asked Kasharn why he’d brought a knife.
“Kasharn then produced a knife from his waistband and we all went silent for about four minutes.”
After the attack, the defendant said he returned home after and noticed blood on his pants.
He said he believed the blood came from contact with Mr Campbell.
Mr Steede, 17, died in hospital eight days after he was stabbed on the night of February 13.
Prosecutors allege that he was lured to a park in the Nottingham suburb of Bulwell, where he was chased and attacked by a group of young men.
Five teenagers have been charged with the murder, including Mr Campbell, 19, Remmell Campbell-Miller, 18, two 17-year-old boys and a 16-year-old girl.
All five deny the offence. The trial continues.
