Two men are on trial in London for a horrific killing which left the victim’s guts “spilling out of his belly”.
Ezra Abeka-Soares, of Caxton Road, Southall, Middlesex, and Morgan Mockford, of Randolf Road, Walthamstow, are said to have cycled up to 17-year-old victim Elijah Dornelly and a friend and ambushed them on the street in May 2017, MailOnline reports.
“Elijah Dornelly’s friend managed to escape and run away, but Elijah Dornelly was not so fortunate,” said prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC.
“Whilst he managed to dodge the first blow from Ezra Abeka-Soares, he was unable to avoid a lunge from Morgan Mockford who stabbed him, once, to the gut.
“The knife entered his belly and cut the aorta, the main artery in the body, causing massive and fatal blood loss. The whole attack was recorded on CCTV.
“Despite being fatally wounded, Elijah Dornelly ran off and made his way to the rear entrance of a shisha cafe called Arabian Nights.
“He ran inside and subsequently collapsed. His intestines were spilling out of his belly.”
