Ezekiel (pictured wearing a black shirt) died on 19 February after being stabbed twice. Police and ambulance crews were called to a report of a stabbing in Churchfield Lane, Radford at around 7.10pm.Both teenagers ran from the victim leaving Ezekiel to die in the street.

A port-mortem revealed that he died due to the second stabbing to his heart, liver and lung. The first stabbing was to his arm and chest.

A team of detectives worked around-the-clock to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death and a total of four arrests were made as part of those enquiries, with two further teenagers having no further action taken.

The court heard the 16-year-old defendant in the case was also involved in a knife-point robbery two days before Ezekiel was murdered.

The teenager produced a knife and stole a coat, rucksack and chain from a 17-year-old boy in Norton Street, Radford, on 17 February.

The pair are due to be sentenced on Monday.
