Teenager was "murdered in dispute over a bottle of beer" Court was told

Published

A Teenager who died from a fatal stab wound to his heart after he was attacked at a party.

Jay Whiston tried to get away from the scene but a jury heard today how he was stabbed a second time before he collapsed nearby.

Despite help from friends, neighbours in the Colchester street and paramedics, the 17-year-old died a short while later in hospital.

By that time, his alleged attacker had fled from the scene and was on his way to his girlfriend’s home in Clacton.

“This was a senseless and tragic taking of a young life so full of promise,” prosecutor Mark Milliken-Smith QC told Chelmsford Crown Court.

“This is another desperate example of the indiscriminate and cowardly use of knives if any more evidence of the prevelance of knives was needed,” he told a jury.

And he added: “This did not take place in a gang-over-run inner city estate but at a party at a house in suburban Colchester.”

Jay and his friends had been at a party at a house in Marlowe Way. Lexden, along with around 100 other young people.

But a jury of seven men and five women heard how there was “an air of menace” at the scene thanks to one group of young people including alleged killer Edward Redman.

Mr Milliken-Smith alleged this group “presented an air of fear” and at one stage during the evening, Jay’s group of friends were walking down an alleyway while Redman’s group were coming the other way.

As they passed, Redman asked a friend of Jay to hand over a bottle of beer but when he refused, he was hit.

Jay got involved to help his friend and in the scuffle that followed, Jay was allegedly stabbed in the chest by Redman.

As he staggered from the scene, one of Redman’s friends was heard to say “I’m going to bottle him” and Redman allegedly said: “I’m going to do him.”

Moments later, Redman’s friend threw a bottle towards Jay and Redman stabbed Jay a second time in the abdomen, Mr Milliken-Smith alleged.

Edward Redman denies murdering Jay Whiston at a house in Colchester on September 8, 2012.

Redman, 18, Halstead Road, Eight Ash Green, is alleged to have stabbed Jay to death during a party at a house in Marlowe Way, Lexden.

The teenager from Aster Close, Clacton, died at Colchester General Hospital later.

Redman’s father Gary, 51, also from Halstead Road, Eight Ash Green, his 19-year-old brother John, High Street, Halstead, and Shannon Fenlon, 18, Jameson Road, Clacton, face a joint charge of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice in connection with the alleged murder.

The three are accused of committing a series of acts between September 9 and September 12, 2012, with intent to pervert the course of justice by destroying or interfering with material which was potentially evidence relevant to a murder investigation.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
