Icah Peart KC and Judy Khan KC appeared at the Central Criminal Court on Monday 17 April 2023 to represent their clients who had both been accused of murder. After a trial which began on 20th March 2023 both of their clients were acquitted.

The defendants were working men who intervened to prevent a man called Reece Young from beating up two girls in Croydon on 30th March 2021. Young turned on them and attacked Kisekka with a knife, stabbing him 12 times – 4 times to the back as he sought to run away. He stabbed Harris twice. Young was killed in the ensuing struggle for control of the knife by a single stab wound to the chest, and the defendants were arrested. They were thereafter interviewed and released on bail for 9  months before being charged and remanded in custody for the next 15 months prior to their acquittal by the jury. 

Icah Peart KC and Judy Khan KC are both members of the Garden Court Chambers Criminal Defence Team.
