The defendants were said to have come from broken homes and turned to drug dealing as a way of making “easy money”.

Prosecutor Crispin Aylett QC had told jurors they took a “casual approach to violence” in a world where knife crime was “routine”.

The court had heard how Ong-a-Kwie had been knifed in the thigh six months before and was on the lookout for his assailants on the day of the murder.

Police said at least three knives had been seized during the investigation but none was confirmed as the murder weapon.

On the evening of March 1, Petrovic had driven the defendants to Amy’s Park in Harold Hill, east London, after Ong-a-Kwie sent an urgent request for a lift.

Giving evidence, Jodie’s boyfriend Eddie Coyle, 18, told how she collapsed in his arms in front of their horrified friends.

He said he thought the taller of the two assailants – said to be 6ft 2in Ong-a-Kwie – was about to punch Jodie when he “swung his arm out” and stabbed her.

Mr Coyle said: “She was in shock at first. She started screaming continuously, very loud, about two minutes straight. After she stopped screaming she began to faint.”

Jodie died before she arrived at hospital from a 18cm deep stab wound to the back which almost passed right through her body.

As news of the attack spread through social media, police rushed to find her father Peter, who was out celebrating his birthday in central London.

THE stepmum of tragic Girl Scout Jodie Chesney have come face to face with her alleged killers in court today. Joanne Chesney was at the Old Bailey for the plea hearing of two men and two boys accused of her Judge Wendy Joseph QC said: "Each defendant, in the charge of murder at least

At first, investigators were in the dark, with no motive, no CCTV and no clear picture of what had happened in the “pitch black” park.

The case was cracked after a motorist came forward to report Petrovic’s Corsa in a road nearby.

It was connected to a separate incident later that night when Petrovic was forced to abandon the car in the street after being robbed at knifepoint, jurors heard.

In the coming days, police seized key CCTV and phone evidence linking Petrovic to the rest of the defendants, who turned on each other at their Old Bailey trial, although the 16-year-old declined to give evidence.

Petrovic said he knew nothing of what was about to happen in the park.

Ong-a-Kwie admitted being in the park but said the 17-year-old had stabbed Jodie, thinking she was a youth called “Tash”.

In turn, the 17-year-old said Ong-a-Kwie was responsible and had even confessed that he “messed up” before disposing on the knife and burning his clothes.

It can now be reported that Judge Wendy Joseph QC ruled out a jury site visit to Amy’s Park, partly over concern that purple ribbons in remembrance of Jodie might prove too emotive.

The symbolic ribbons were also removed from the entrance to the historic Central Criminal Court before the trial began to avoid jurors being influenced.

The two killers will be sentenced on November 18.
