Boy admits stabbing Bradford teacher

The Guardian is reporting that a 14-year-old boy has admitted to stabbing a supply teacher in a school classroom…

The teenager, who cannot be named, was arrested after 50-year-old Vincent Uzomah was stabbed in the stomach at Dixons Kings Academy in Bradford, West Yorkshire, on 11 June.

He appeared at the city’s crown court on Monday where he denied attempted murder but admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

The Crown Prosecution Service accepted the plea and the judge, Jonathan Durham Hall QC, said the boy would be sentenced at a later date…

The teenager was remanded in custody and will be sentenced later this year, probably in August…
