Burglar murder charge is dropped

Breaking News

A man who stabbed a teenage burglar to death during a break-in at his mother’s home has had a murder charge against him dropped by prosecutors.

Tyler Juett, 17, and a boy of 14 broke into the property in Nottingham in March 2009 but were confronted by 23-year-old Omari Roberts.

The 17-year-old died from his injuries. A judge at Nottingham Crown Court formally found Mr Roberts not guilty.

Mr Roberts’ mother had called the decision to prosecute “outrageous”.

  1. Courts may not prosecute him, but he as to live with the fact that he killed another human being, albeit in self defence. I do not envy his life. He will never get away from this. It will haunt him all his life.
