A 17-year-old boy has been convicted of the murder of teenager Lewis Wenham in Milton Keynes.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was found guilty of murder by a jury at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday, December 2, 2021.
Lewis, 17, suffered stab wounds in Tyburn Avenue, Springfield, Milton Keynes on 7 November 2020. He was taken to hospital where he later died.
Lewis, 17, had sustained stab wounds as a result of an altercation with the 17-year-old boy. He was taken to hospital but sadly later died from his injuries.
Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Blaik, of the Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, said: “The death of Lewis Wenman on November 7, 2020, last year has devastated his family.
“Lewis died having been stabbed three times during an attack in Springfield. There was absolutely no justification for this incident that resulted in Lewis losing his life in front of two friends who tried to save him along with the attending police officers, ambulance crews and the staff at Milton Keynes A&E department.
“I would like to pay tribute to Lewis’s family for their support of the investigation over the last 12 months. During the trial, they have had to listen to the detail of what happened that night and watch parts of the incident captured on a CCTV. They have conducted themselves with absolute dignity throughout.
“The conviction today will never bring any closure to the family but I hope it will go some way in helping the grieving process knowing the person responsible has been convicted of Lewis’s murder.
“This is another example of how knives really do ruins lives.”
