Conviction for murder 13 years ago

A man has been convicted of a muder that took place in Brixton 13 years ago. Dialo Hall, 33, who is of no fixed abode, was found guilty today of the murder of 27-year-old Dennis Cowan in October 2000.

A Detective Chief Inspector said the conviction is an example of the commitment of the Metropolitan Police, to find people responsible for violent crime, no matter how much time has passed, or how far a suspect is willing to flee.
