Case No:
32-year-old Bobby Ternent had an argument with his friend John Avers over money. Bobby Ternent alleged that John Avers asked him to look after £40,000 for him, but when the money was returned the money was short, Bobby denied this.

13th September 2020,  the father and son duo picked up Mr Avers in a sporty BMW X6, and drove him to an Iceland car park in Whalebone Lane South, Dagenham, Essex. 
Bobby Ternent, was at the wheel, with his father Gary Ternent having thrown Mr Avers out of the car, Gary then held John Avers down on the ground in front of the car, John Avers was then run over by bobby, then Bobby spun the car around and ran over him for a second time.
Gary Ternent then went to join his son in the car, they then ran their victim over a third time, and a fourth time.
They then seem to have been satisfied that they had done enough damage to Me Avers, and drove away, leaving John Avers dying from the injuries they caused him, they drove home.
The whole incident happened in front of witnesses and was caught on CCTV.
The men went home, with Bobby changing his clothes and setting fire to his BMW, that had false number plates.

Witness called police as the car drove off, police arrived about five minutes later, and found John in a large pool of blood, he had suffered a large number of very serious injuries.
