Nasir Patrice Wiki’
A jury heard a 16-year-old using a “meter-long” sword to kill another teenager in an apartment used by drug dealers. The Warwick Crown Court said that the young man, who could not be named because of his age, was expected to deny the murder of 17-year-old Nasir Patrice and defend his self-defense. He claimed that he took a taxi after the murder, took out an “ugly looking knife” and “dropped” two people. Prosecutor Michael Burrows QC said the young man allegedly killed Mr. Patrice and attempted to kill another victim, while filing Crown’s case against the defendant from London.
The now 17-year-old also denies that he tried to kill the second child, whose lung collapsed and was in the hospital for five days. Giving a general picture of the events to the jury panel on the morning of January 15 last year, Mr. Burrows said Nasir was stabbed when he was seen entering an apartment on Tachbrook Road at Leamington Spa.
Mr Burrows said of the young man accused of murder, who remained in the flat: ‘A large knife he used to kill Nasir Patrice was armed with a sword. The prosecution says he killed him and wanted to kill him. As I understand it, he acted for self-defense. Telling the jurors that Nasir suffered four stab wounds, Mr. Burrows said, “There is a background to this case – it’s drugs.” Mr Burrows brought to the court that the young man accused of murder and Nasir were ‘rival salesmen’, he said. The court heard that another person staying in the flat had left his property to bring cigarette paper to the young people accused of murder while the three men ‘rushed’ in. Mr Burrows said of the witness: “He came across three men who entered the flat. He heard shouts and screams. He heard someone shout,” Drop this, put it down. “‘You can conclude that this is one of the three people who passed by to enter the flat.’ The jurors heard the witness stop to take his breath back and the same three people leave the house in a minute, or so. “They were shouting for help,” Mr. Burrows said. did not see a gun. ‘ The jurors also heard the accused ‘allegations that he had left the flat after about 30 seconds’ and’ looked around and grinned before he left. Nasir from Birmingham was announced dead, despite the best efforts of the medical staff. An air ambulance was called to the scene, and at 11.10 am. Mr. Burrows continued, “One of the stab wounds on his chest went through the body. “The pathologist thinks this requires what he describes as the upper force.” Refusing to divert the course of justice, the defendant allegedly asked two builders to call him a taxi before leaving the area.
