February has been an extremely busy month in London's courts.

Among those jailed were six men who were convicted of the murder of Michael Jonas in Penge and two men who were found guilty of murdering Charlie Bartolo and Kearne Solanke in Abbey Wood.

Meanwhile, a truck driver was jailed after he crashed into a bus stop in Blackheath and killed 14-year-old Logan Finch.

And in other news, a mum from Erith was jailed after she tried to cover up an XL Bully attack.

Here are the names and faces of South Londoners who are now behind bars.

(Image: Met Police)Alagie Jobe, Hussain Bah, Sammie Shallangwa and Jake Debonsu accidentally killed their friend as they murdered another boy in Abbey Wood.

On November 26, 2022, five teens “armed to the teeth” with knives and machetes drove from Thamesmead to Abbey Wood with the intention of killing a local boy. 

They set upon 16-year-old Charlie Bartolo and stabbed him to death. 

Hussain Bah was driving a Nissan Qashqai which rammed Charlie off his motorbike on Sewell Road. 

Alagie Jobe, Kearne Solanke and Shallangwa jumped out of the car and stabbed Charlie to death as he laid defenceless on the floor. 

But in a moment of “murderous stupidity” one of the killers accidentally knifed “one of their own team”, Kearne Solanke, meaning two 16-year-old lives were lost that night. 

Kearne was driven to Titmuss Avenue in Thamesmead where he was abandoned to die on the pavement. 

All four defendants were given life prison sentences.

Frederick Mansfield, 43, of Imperial Gardens in Hythe, was jailed after he crashed his truck into a bus stop in Blackheath, killing a 14-year-old boy. 

Logan Finch was waiting for the 321 bus on Eltham Road with his aunt and cousins on December 21, 2021, when Mansfield’s truck veered onto the pavement.  

Logan was tragically pronounced dead at the scene after he was pinned between the truck and the bus stop, while his aunt Rachel Poole was left with serious injuries.    

Natalie Roach, Logan’s mum, told the court: “Logan was a bright, energetic, playful and considerate young man, loving life and his family.  

“There was so much love from people who knew Logan. He was everyone’s favourite person. Not a bad word could be said about Logan.”  

During a trial, Mansfield had blamed a previously undiagnosed sleep condition for Logan’s death, as he claimed he had drifted off seconds before the crash.  

But Natalie criticised Mansfield for pleading not guilty to causing Logan’s death and forcing them to endure an agonising trial.  

“As a parent, we teach our children right and wrong. To be honest, Frederick Mansfield hasn’t done what is right,” she said. 

Mansfield was jailed for seven years.

Danielle Roberts, 42, of Byron Drive in Erith, tried to cover up a devastating XL Bully attack on her daughter’s 10-year-old friend. 

She was out shopping when her boyfriend’s dog mauled the young girl at her home. 

When her panicked daughter phoned to tell her about the attack, Roberts said “sort that girl out or we’ll be in trouble”.  

The seriously injured young girl was then told to hide in the bathroom from police, who had been called by a neighbour.  

Roberts initially refused to let police inside the house until the injured girl staggered downstairs and called out “help me”.  

As she drifted in and out of consciousness, the girl told officers: “If I die tell my parents I love them.”  

Roberts wept as she was sentenced to 20 months in prison for perverting the course of justice and being in charge of a dangerously out-of-control dog which caused injury.
