Man jailed over teenager's killing
A man who killed a teenager and buried his body under a garden shed has been jailed indefinitely.
William Regan, 37, stabbed Stephen Ojerinola, 18, ten times as they came to blows over the proceeds of a £25,000 burglary.
His body was found seven months later in November, last year, after the newly erected shed was taken down.
Regan, of Kidbrooke, south-east London, was given an indeterminate sentence for public protection for manslaughter and told he would serve a minimum sentence of seven years.
He was also given concurrent jail terms for burglary and preventing a burial. He had been originally charged with murder but pleaded guilty to the other offences.
Old Bailey Judge Richard Hawkins said Mr Ojerinola hit Regan with a bat and also had a knife.
Judge Hawkins added: "Your response began in self-defence, but rapidly turned into unlawful violence."
Lee Davis, 36, also of Kidbrooke, was jailed for three years for helping Regan bury the body.
Max Hill, QC, prosecuting, told the court: "Neighbours started to notice unusual activity, including the delivery of the shed, flat packed onto the roof of a car, and night-time digging in the rear garden that went on into the early hours of the following morning."
Police searched the house and found traces of blood. Experts then excavated the ground underneath the shed and found his body.
