Headteacher Philip Lawrence's killer to be released from prison
A man convicted of killing headmaster Philip Lawrence is set to be released from prison. Learco Chindamo was just 15 when he stabbed Philip Lawrence outside St George's Roman Catholic School in Maida Vale in 1995.
The Parole Board has confirmed that a panel has directed the release of the man responsible for the death of headteacher Philip Lawrence.
A spokesman said:
We can confirm that a three-member panel of the board has directed the release of Learco Chindamo.
The decision to release is a matter for the board, which is independent. Practical arrangements for the release are a matter for the Secretary of State. We are unable to comment further on the details of this case.
