Prosecutor Crispin Aylett QC had told jurors the defendants took a "casual approach to violence" in a world where knife crime was "routine".

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

CCTV footage showed Ong-a-Kwie and the 17-year-old disappearing into the park before the sounds of Jodie screaming could be heard.

A girl scout, with a glittering future, was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack by two teenage drug dealers who regularly carried knives and displayed a chillingly "casual approach to violence", it can now be revealed.

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."

Stabbed to death

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

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

Mr Chesney said in a victim impact statement that his daughter’s murder had "destroyed" his life.

"I have no idea how I am going to continue with my life or even come to terms with the loss,” Mr Chesney said.

At least three knives were seized during an investigation but none was confirmed as the murder weapon, police said.

Jodie’s family shouted “Yes!” when the verdict was read out yesterday following six hours of deliberation by the jury.

Speaking outside court, Jodie's Mr Chesney said he was “over the moon”. "I'm pleased with the verdict. We got them. Justice for Jodie," he said.
