Mother of murdered Luton teenager speaks out after sentencing

The mother of teenager from Luton who was murdered in 2001 has described the impact as "soul-destroying".

Six men have been convicted for the murder of Marcus Hall.

Adebayo Ekun pleaded guilty today for his his part in the brutal gang attack.

Marcus' mother Icelyn Wilson, said: “The impact of the death of my son Marcus, has been soul-destroying on me and my family.

“I have to cope with day-to-day life knowing that I will never get to see my son again.

“The impact on my immediate family, especially my other son who was 14 years old at the time of his brother’s death, and his sister who was nearly 16 years old, has been intensely sad.

“My then-14-year-old son would not speak or communicate with anyone and that has been very hard for me.

“My daughter has spoken freely about Marcus which has been a great help to both her and me.

“My other son was only two years old when Marcus was killed and therefore will never know his big brother and that will hurt me for the rest of my life.

“The death of Marcus will never leave me or my family – 14 years down the line and it still hurts as if it had happened yesterday and I will never get over it."
