Darrell Desuze Jailed for Just 8 Years for Killing Pensioner Richard Mannington Bowes during 2011 London Riots

Darrell Desuze who killed pensioner Richard Mannington Bowes during last year's riots in London has been sentenced to eight years in jail.

His mother Lavinia Desuze, 31, was jailed for 18 months at the same court for perverting the course of justice by cutting up his clothes.
