16-yr-old boy charged with Ealing riots murder

Tuesday, 16 August, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Following his arrest and that of a 35-yr-old woman arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, the 16-yr-old boy arrested for Richard Bowes’ death during the Ealing riots has been charged with his murder.

The boy is also charged with violent disorder and four counts of burglary. He will appear at Croydon Youth Court tomorrow.

A 35-yr-old woman (not 31, as previously reported) is charged with perverting the course of justice in connection with the case. She will appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

Police were previously seeking a witness to the assault on Mr Bowes, who has now come forward. It is likely that the murder trial will be held behind closed doors, due to automatic reporting restrictions on cases involving U18s, unless the trial judge decides otherwise.

Meanwhile another Ealing man has died after being assaulted on Thursday 11th August.
