Who Killed 12-year-old Girl Ava White?

A 14-year-old boy was found guilty of murdering Ava White, a 12-year-old Liverpool schoolgirl, after stabbing her in the neck in a quarrel over a Snapchat video.

During a 12-day trial, the Liverpool crown court heard that the kid stabbed her and then displayed callous disdain for his acts, seeming very pleased with himself, as if he felt big.

The child, who has a legal right to remain anonymous, denied murder and manslaughter, claiming he stabbed Ava accidentally in self-defense. However, a jury took two hours and eight minutes to find the defendant guilty. More than 20 members of Ava’s family were in the public gallery as it came, and there were cheers.

The boy, who will go down in history as one of the UK’s youngest convicted killers, buried his head in his hands. Mrs. Justice Yip, the trial judge, said he would be sentenced on July 11 but warned the boy: “In light of the jury’s verdict, I think you know I can only impose a life sentence. What I have to do is decide what the shortest amount of time that you will have to serve in custody is.”

The boy’s defense attorney, Nick Johnson QC, claimed that Ava, who was 5cm taller than the defendant, was the “aggressor” who wanted to “battle” him.

According to Newell, the jury had to evaluate the boy’s actions following the incident. Ava’s friends claimed the boy grinned and laughed after stabbing her. He bolted from the scene, leaving his knife and coat behind.

The jury was shown CCTV evidence of the youngster and his friends entering a supermarket and buying butter, which he claimed was for crumpets, and he was also seen preparing his hair for a photo.

According to CCTV footage, he was also the guy who stabbed Ava, although he denied being there, saying authorities he was playing Call of Duty with a friend. In later interviews, he blamed the attack on another child. Newell said: “Knowing he had stabbed her, his behaviour is of someone who is, at best, utterly unconcerned, at worst, rather pleased with himself, as if he feels big.”
