Steede murder trial begins in Britain

Lyrico Steede, a 17-year-old Bermudian stabbed to death in England, was “lured” to the scene of his attack, a jury in Nottingham Crown Court heard.

Peter Joyce QC opened the case against the five murder accused on Wednesday.

The college student, who lived in Bulwell, was attacked in a playground in Stock Well on February 13.

He died five days later. Mr Joyce told the court that four men are alleged to have aimed to “trap Lyrico and kill him”.

He added they acted with the help of a 16-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Mr Steede was said to have walked to the park with the girl at about 7pm.

Four men are alleged to have travelled to the scene by taxi about half an hour later.

Mr Steede, called “a sitting duck”, tried to get help at a nearby home and was found by police seriously injured on the doorstep.

He was rushed to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre in critical condition and died on February 18. The jury heard that the group came to the playpark “for one thing and one thing alone, to attack Lyrico”.

Kasharn Campbell, 19, of no fixed address and Remmell Campbell-Miller, 18, from Sneinton Boulevard, Nottingham, are in the dock along with two boy juveniles and the girl. Mr Steede lived in Britain with family.
