Brockley Road girl convicted of honey trap murder

Samantha Joseph, 16, has been convicted of murder for luring a Deptford boy to his death at the hands of a south London gang. The Times reports:

Joseph, who had no previous convictions, was brought up by her hard-working mother, Sheila, the head chef at a pub in Brockley. She lived with her mother in a flat above a bookmaker’s on the busy Brockley Road in southeast London.

A total of seven people will be sentenced for the crime, which took place in Thornton Heath, last year.
