For the murder of a 13-year-old boy, two young people in England have been imprisoned for a long time.
A court in the city of Reading sentenced the 14-year-olds to twelve and 13 years' imprisonment in a juvenile offender facility on Friday.
Together with a 14-year-old girl, they lured the boy into an ambush in a city park near London.
One of the convicts was 13 years old at the time of the crime.
The two boys had already been found guilty at the end of July.
The girl was sentenced to three years and two months youth imprisonment for manslaughter and cover-up.
In the case of the killed Olly Stephens, the perpetrators had "trouble" with the victim.
There was no more detailed information about the motif.
The girl is said to have called any violence against the 13-year-old "karma".
The January 3rd act highlighted the widespread knife violence among youth in Britain.
Almost every week there are reports of teenagers being stabbed by other teenagers.
Drugs or gang crime often play a role in this.
