Teen charged with Bermudian’s murder
A 15-year-old boy appeared in an English court yesterday charged with the murder of a Bermudian teenager.
Samuel Baker was stabbed in the chest in the Lowedges area of Sheffield last week.
The 15-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was remanded in custody at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court until the morning. South Yorkshire Police said that they responded to a report of a stabbing shortly before 8pm last Thursday.
Samuel was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 9pm. The English police said Samuel’s family “who continue to be supported by officers, have asked for their privacy to be respected”.
