Teenager jailed following murder in Guildford

A 14-year-old boy has been sentenced to six years in prison following the murder of his mother's partner in the Bellfields area of Guildford last year.

At a previous hearing Jerome Ellis, was found guilty of the manslaughter of 54-year-old Neil Tulley on the grounds of loss of control.

His brother, 23-year-old Joshua Ellis was found guilty of the murder of Mr Tulley and will be sentenced next month.

During the trial the court heard that the victim's body was discovered with multiple stab wounds on the sofa at the family home on 13 August 2013.

A post mortem showed Mr Tulley had died after sustaining more than sixty stab wounds.

A police manhunt and public appeal was launched after the two brothers went missing following the fatal attack. They handed themselves in at Woking Police Station on the evening of Wednesday, 14 August 2013.

This was a tragic case in which a man was fatally injured and two families have been completely devastated as a result. It has been a distressing case for the jury and the investigation team involved which have had to deal with some particularly traumatic evidence and harrowing accounts.”
