Trevor Gibbon convicted for the murder of Alison Morrison

25/06/2015

Trevor Gibbon, 48, was convicted today at the Central Criminal Court for the murder of Alison Morrison, 45. Ms Morrison was fatally stabbed shortly after she left her home on 18 December 2014.

Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS London, Baljit Ubhey OBE, said: "This was a shocking attack on a defenceless woman as she walked from her home in Harrow last year.

"Alison Morrison was on her daily commute to work when her neighbour, Trevor Gibbon, ambushed her. He forced her to the ground, stabbing her repeatedly before he left her for dead. As she lay dying in the street Ms Morrison repeatedly told the strangers trying to help her that Trevor Gibbon was her attacker.

"When he was later arrested Trevor Gibbon described himself as a coward, but today he has been found to be a pre-meditated murderer.

"I hope that this conviction can bring some small comfort to Ms Morrison's family and friends, our thoughts are with them at this difficult time."
