Bungling hitmen to be sentenced for teenager's murder

Two hitmen who stabbed teenager Aamir Siddiqi to death by mistake will be sentenced today.

Ben Hope, 39, and Jason Richards, 38, both from Cardiff, were each paid £1,000 in "blood money" to murder a middle-aged family man who owed money to a shady businessman.

But the "hit" went tragically wrong when the balaclava-clad killers, who were high on drugs, went to the wrong address in Roath, Cardiff, in April 2010 and murdered teenager Aamir by mistake.
