Brianna Ghey: jury unanimously convict two teens

today20th December 2023 5


Two teenagers have been found guilty of killing Brianna Ghey, 16-year-old. The jury, 7 men and 5 women, have been deliberating for almost hours.

The two teenagers, both 16, have been known so far only as ”Girl X” and ”Boy Y” during the trial due to their age. They denied the murder charges.

In a statement, deputy chief crown prosecutor Ursula Doyle of CPS Mersey Cheshire said:

‘This has been a difficult prosecution not least because two very young people were on trial for the most serious offence known to criminal law. It has involved using a number of measures to ensure that the defendants could participate fully in the trial and enable them to give their evidence. The Crown Prosecution Service would like to thank the family of Brianna Ghey for the courage and dignity that they have shown throughout these proceedings. We hope todays verdict brings some solace, and our thoughts and sympathies remain with them at this difficult time.’
