22/03/2017

Steven Sharpe (31) of Cheltenham appeared at Bristol Crown Court yesterday for the first day of his trial for the murder of teenager Camran Green (17) following a fatal stabbing.

Steven Sharpe stabbed Camran Green in the stomach in a robbery at an address on Shakespeare Road, Cheltenham on Sunday, October 2 2016 and tragically Camran’s life was taken.

At the hearing this morning, Steven Sharpe changed his plea to guilty.

CPS South West District Crown Prosecutor Jill MacNamara said “This was a very serious and vicious attack in which a young man lost his life. The use of a knife as detailed in this case shows the consequences of those actions on that fatal night.  CPS has worked closely with Gloucestershire Constabulary in preparing the evidence for trial which has resulted in this conviction.”

Judge of the High Court, Sir John Royce sentenced Steven Sharpe to life in prison and will serve a minimum of 24 ½ years. The length of this sentence reflects the seriousness of the offence.

Jill added “We hope that this sentencing brings some sense of justice for the family of Camran Green that Steven Sharpe has today been jailed for a very substantial period.”
