A 15-year-old boy has been found guilty of the murder of market trader Rashid Naeem.

A second 15-year-old, who was also charged with possession of a knife, was found not guilty on both counts.

The jury of six men and six woman have been sent home for the day after failing to reach a verdict on the 16-year-old defendant.

Mr Naeem, 29, died in hospital on February 18, two days after being stabbed at his Queen’s Market stall.
