Quartet of killers branded 'complete cowards' by murdered teen's sister

Croydon Guardian: Jamaal Ferguson Jamaal Ferguson

The sister of murdered teen Peter Hagan has described her brother's four killers as "complete cowards" after they were jailed for 72 years yesterday.

Rodrica Hagan provided an emotional victim impact statement which was read out at the Old Bailey before the convicted quartet were sentenced by Judge Peter Rook.

Ms Hagan's words were directed at her brother's killers, all of whom are grown men in their 20s.

She said: "It is unimaginable how one night can change the lives of a whole family.

"We wanted those responsible to hear from us the absolute devastation they have caused.

"The pain is indescribable. The sense of loss does not seem to diminish and it is impossible to put into words.

"It is not a man who attacks anyone with a knife, it is a complete coward. Someone who cannot take someone on without a weapon.

"What happened to these young men to turn them into people who do something like this?

"But we forgive those who are responsible for Peter's death, we believe in God and we must forgive."

The Old Bailey heard how Peter's mother Yvonne Noah, who has fostered dozens of kids including Peter, is considering returning to her native Sierra Leone because of unbearable grief.

Ms Hagan added: "Our mother is a foster carer to over one hundred children but she feels she has failed Peter.

"The negative impact on our mother has been indescribable.

"We are worried about her health and she has not been at court to hear the details about Peter's death.

"She is considering moving back to Sierra Leone to try to cope with her grief.

"No remorse has been shown by the defendants which has made the experience even more distressing and upsetting.

"If there was any sight that upset us the most it was Malki Ferguson smiling in court as we grieved."

Peter, 16, from Brixton, was stabbed four times during the frenzied attack which took place at a birthday party in a flat in Albon House, Neville Gill Close, Wandsworth on February 17.

The party was being held to celebrate the 19th birthday of Jamilya Ferguson, sister to the Ferguson brothers, and she had invited the group of younger boys, including Mr Hagan.

About 25 people attended but the revelry was cut short once fighting broke after Jamaal Ferguson had apparently been insulted by one of the younger group.

A pathologist told the court Mr Hagan had died from a stab wound to the femural artery which caused significant blood loss.

Despite the efforts of paramedics who found him collapsed in a stairwell, Peter was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jamaal Ferguson, 23, of Albon House, Neville Gill Close, Wandsworth, was jailed for 21 years for Mr Hagan's murder.

Dean Harmes, 27, from Wentworth Court, Garratt Lane, Wandsworth, was handed a 17 year sentence.

Romell Martin, 22, from Fairgreen Road, Thornton Heath, was also jailed for 17 years.

A fourth defendant, Jamaal's brother Malki Ferguson, 22, was also jailed for 17 years.

Nasty cowards that have to use weapons cos they cant fight with their firsts.
Dean is a nasty little man who used to beat the c*** out of his girlfriend every night to the point i would be phoning the police to report it. Him and Malki are also drug dealers around King Georges Park and Malki is the fattest man i have ever seen and they are a pair of nasty bullies who get away with most things as they are known knife carriers so think they think their untouchable.
Hope you all rot in hell cowards

eeeeeerrrrrrrr, i live below Dean and yes he beat his women on a regular basis, check with the police as many residents in the block complained about the abuse as we could hear it night after night.
Yes i know Malki and he was nice person but he also had a nasty side to him.
why was there cctv of Romell running though the park wit a knife and returning with no knife and top.
stop defending them as one day (god forbid) this could easily be someone who is close to you and you would want justice.

In answer to ms hagan's earlier question of "what turns these young men into killers" it is the fact that their heads are crammed so full of gangster rap rude boy ghetto rubbish that they have totally lost the concept of what day to day reality is.......they have no clue to what being normal is......their lives appear to be one great big dysfunctional "gangster rap parody" with all the activities that go with it......mugging people......stabbing people......shooting people etc......the only way that society can be totally rid of this rubbish would be to bring back the death penalty.......it would certainly be more cost effective to carry this out rather than keeping someone in prison for 10 years only for them to start stabbing people again when released.......I don't think that people like this can be rehabilitated back into society as they are a high risk danger to the rest of society.......also once they leave prison no employer would want to give them jobs because of their previous convictions which in turn means that they end up becoming even more of a burden on tax payers and the welfare state........so there you have it.......time to reinstate the death penalty !
