Markham Death

Markham died in August last year after being stabbed in the back, armpit and chest for confronting the boy, who had already been banned from the area on a criminal behavior order he had previously broken.

Mason Mr. Markham, who was in his shed, grabbed a drill bit and went out to confront the group of young men after returning home shortly before 6:00 p.m. m. in August of last year.

He was treated by paramedics but was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem examination later confirmed that he died from a stab wound to the lung.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “A member of James’s family saw a dispute but his view was restricted and he hadn’t realized it was James with whom the teenagers were arguing.”

James had approached the group with a drill bit in an apparent attempt to scare them off.

‘One of the group came forward, armed with a knife, and the couple started hitting each other.

James received three blows: in the back, the armpit and the chest. This last wound punctured his lung and would prove fatal.

A member of the public who had tried to intervene came to James’ aid as the teen and the rest of the group fled the scene.

James’s desperate family ran from his house to try to help him.

“The officers who arrived at the scene first administered first aid, but despite their best efforts, and those of emergency paramedics and members of the public, James died at the scene.

The teenager had dropped his mobile phone while he was running away and was quickly identified.

Arrested

“He was arrested on suspicion of murder two days later and made no comment in interviews with police.”

Detective Inspector John Marriot, a crime specialist, said: “James was a loving family man who leaves behind a partner and three children.”

‘That day they encountered a horrible scenario that no family should have to endure. I hope this conviction brings you some comfort as you continue to grieve for James.

‘The teenager in this incident was subject to a Criminal Behavior Order and he should never have been in the area. He had outwitted him on several occasions.

The knife he used was never recovered, indicating that he went to great lengths to try and distance himself from this horrific crime.

“But my team worked to collate a vast amount of witness, CCTV and forensic evidence that proved his guilt. He will now spend a substantial amount of time behind bars.

“I would like to acknowledge my team’s skill and determination in working to bring justice to James’ family. Our thoughts remain with them.
