FACTFILE

 

Wednesday 17th November 2010,  Aiden Jackson met  David Cowley at Sleaford railway station and was then driven  to a remote spot at Ballast Pits off Mareham Lane, in Cowley's Smart car. Cowley paid Jackson 50 for sex. But once at a disused quarry, Jackson dragged his victim  from the car punching and kicking him, he then strangled him.

He robbed him of money and jewellery and stole the car. The following day he crashed the car and left it abounded.

He told family and friends he had found a body, first taking his sister top look, then his mother, it was his mother that the called police.

 

Tuesday 30th August 2011, The trial starts at Lincoln Crown Court,. On Trial is Aiden Jackson, who denies murder but admits manslaughter, another 17 year old boy has admitted handling stolen goods, but denies perverting the course of justice.

 

Wednesday 28th September 2011, The jury of six men and five women took six hours of deliberation before returning a verdict of guilty of murder. The judge postponed sentence until a pre-sentence report could be done, as Jackson was only 17 at the time of the murder.

The other 17 year old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons was discharged with no charge.
