Karim Khalil QC in successful murder prosecution
17 August 2015
Karim Khalil QC prosecuted 3 teenagers accused of robbing and killing an older male in a drugs deal. Two were convicted of robbery and one of murder in what was described as a vicious killing by stabbing of 31 year old victim over 1/2 oz of cannabis. There was no direct evidence of who killed the victim but careful analysis of phone records, cell site materials, CCTV and ‘bad character’ information led to a clear inference. Defendants blamed one another and the convicted 2 fought in the dock after the verdicts were returned. Sentencing will be held in September.
