Teenager Denies Murder in England Asphyxiation Case

Teenager Denies Murder in England Asphyxiation Case


An unnamed teenage boy has been charged with the murder of a man in Lincolnshire, England, after arranging a sexual rendezvous.

BBC News reports that the boy, 17, whose name was not released for legal reasons, said he is not guilty of murder in the death of David Cowley, 67, whose body was found in November 2010. Instead, prosecutors say, the boy admitted to manslaughter.

The prosecutor, Amjad Malik, told the court that Crowley was a gay man who met the defendant at a railway station and offered him cash and cell phone top-ups in exchange for sex. The pair drove off to a remote location, where Crowley was dragged from his car and kicked and punched by the boy.

"He brought David Cowley face down, compressing his neck, probably in an arm lock from behind," Malik said, adding that Cowley was quickly asphyxiated.
