Damilola Taylor 'killer,' returned to jail

Post  AnnaEsse on Sun 13 Mar - 20:22


One of the two brothers convicted over the death of schoolboy Damilola Taylor has been returned to jail, a source has confirmed.

Ricky and Danny Preddie were jailed for eight years in 2006 for the manslaughter of the 10-year-old.

Ricky was released in September after serving two-thirds of his sentence. But he has now been returned to jail after breaching his licence conditions, according to reports.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman declined to confirm Preddie's recall.

The spokesman said: "All offenders subject to probation supervision on release from prison have to adhere to a set of strict conditions. They are subject to recall to custody if they breach their conditions or their behaviour indicates that it is no longer safe for them or for the public if they remain in the community.

"Once an offender has been recalled by the probation service it is then for the police to return them to custody."

Damilola's death in November 2000 shocked the nation.

He had moved to Britain from Nigeria a few months before he was jabbed in the thigh with a broken beer bottle by a gang of youths as he walked home from the local library after school.

The youngster was found bleeding to death in a stairwell near his home in Peckham, south London, where local workmen tried to save his life.

The brothers were convicted of manslaughter and jailed for eight years in October 2006. Ricky, who was 13 at the time of the killing, was charged along with his younger brother in 2005.
