A jealous ex-boyfriend and seven members of his family and friends have been found guilty for their parts in the murder of Jay Sewell in Lee.

Daniel Grogan, 20, of Grove Park in Lewisham has been found guilty today (September 27) of murder, violent disorder and wounding with intent.

The fatal stabbing took place in Alwold Crescent on December 11 last year after Jay travelled there with some friends and his girlfriend Gemma Hodder to meet Grogan, in an attempt to stop him from harrassing and threatening Hodder.

But during the Old Bailey court trial it was heard that Grogan had previously been in in a relationship with Hodder, leading him and members of his family to ambush Jay and his friends with knives, hammers, wood, and an axe.

Jay was stabbed along with 18-year-old friend Charlie Pamphlett. The two victims were taken to a south London hospital suffering from stab injuries.

Jay died in hospital at 10.34pm that evening. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a single stab wound to the chest. He was stabbed a further two times in the legs.

Charlie Pamphlett was subsequently discharged from hospital.

Grogan's sister - 30-year-old Francesca Grogan and her boyfriend Jamie Bennett, 31 were convicted of violent disorder.

His parents and Grove Park residents Anne Grogan, 54 and her husband Robert Grogan, a 57-year-old Royal Mail employee, were convicted of manslaughter and violent disorder - Mr Grogan was also guilty of wounding with intent.

Lastly Mr Grogan's 19-year-old cousin Liam Hickey was convicted of wounding with intent and violent disorder.

And, family friend Charlie Dudley 26, was found guilty of manslaughter, wounding with intent and violent disorder.

A teenage defendant who can't be named for legal reasons had also been convicted of violent disorder.

Aisling Hosein, from the CPS said: “The evidence in this case was strong and we relied upon witness accounts, phone and social media evidence, CCTV and DNA evidence.

“We thank the witnesses who supported this prosecution.

"This has been a long and difficult trial for all those involved.

"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Jay Sewell and we hope that these convictions provide some measure of comfort to them.”

Sentencing is due to take place on Monday, 30 September at the Old Bailey.
