Teen 'killed by ex-boyfriend' had been fined by police for wasting time after complaining of his violence, court hears

Post by Thorin on Sat Mar 18, 2017 11:00 am

A teenager was issued with a fixed penalty notice by police for wasting time after complaining about an assault by her ex-boyfriend, who allegedly went on to murder her, a court heard. Police were called after Michael Lane, 27, pulled 19-year-old Shana Grice's hair and tried to grab her mobile phone last March 24, a jury was told.

Prosecutors said the incident happened as she walked down a road after leaving her home, unhappy that he had turned up unannounced, with her two housemates following a visit to a pub.

Lewes Crown Court heard Lane was spoken to by police and denied Miss Grice's claims, before showing officers messages apparently confirming she wanted to be with him. In a list of agreed facts read by junior prosecution counsel Amy Packham, no further action was taken against Lane.

That seems to be the problem. If she sent those messages at around the time that she reported him, the police would think that she was making a false report I guess.

Does her estate have to pay the fine?
