A GROUP of six teenagers have been jailed after fatally stabbing an 18-year-old.

The victim, Lyndon Davis, was found with multiple stab wounds in a walkway on Arneways Avenue in Romford, just metres from his home on March 14 2018.

Despite the work of emergency services, Davis was pronounced dead in hospital at around 1.15am the next morning. A post-mortem examination found the cause of death to be stab wounds to his lower legs.

The six teenagers were found guilty of murder and knife offences on July 18, following a three-month trial at the Old Bailey.

On Monday (September 9), reporting restrictions initially imposed because the defendants were all under 18 at the time of the murder were lifted and the six were named and sentenced.

Jordan Worrie, 18, was jailed for 16 years for murder and 18 months for possession of an offensive weapon/knife. Michael Corcoran, 17, was jailed for 14 years for murder and his brother Connor Corcoran, 18, was jailed for 14 years for murder and 18 months for possession of an offensive weapon/knife. Tyler Jay Faubel, 18, was jailed for 16 years for murder and 18 months for possession of an offensive weapon/knife. Jordan Muinglui, 18, was jailed for 14 years for murder and 18 months for possession of an offensive weapon/knife and Ali Ali, the youngest of the group aged 16, was jailed for 11 years for murder.

The sentences will run concurrently.


PICTURED: Murdered teenager Lyndon Davis

Footage played in court showed Davis getting off a bus and walking towards his home address when a group travelling together in a car and on a moped saw him and followed his route.

Worrie was seen riding past the victim on a moped before he got off and made slashing movements towards him, chasing him into a walkway. Two of the other males then followed them, armed with knives.

CCTV then captured the teenagers leaving the alleyway and fleeing the scene using the same moped and car they had arrived in.

Analysis of CCTV from earlier the same day showed the group hanging around together on the same moped in the afternoon, while examination of mobile phone data showed calls were made between those on the moped and those in the car just moments before the murder.

The court heard that the defendants targeted Davis as he was believed to be associated with a rival gang.

DCI John Massey, who led the investigation, said: “These young men set out that afternoon armed to carry out a fatal attack on Lyndon should the opportunity arise – sadly for him they managed to get to him just minutes before he would have reached his front door.

“All have denied any responsibility for the murder of an 18-year-old who had his whole life ahead of him.

“This was a long and complex investigation but I am pleased these individuals have now been brought to justice and will have to face the consequences of their actions.”
