Named: Teenager acquitted of schoolboy's murder

The teenager acquitted of murdering Manchester Grammar School pupil Yousef Makki can be named today as 17 year old Joshua Molnar.

Molnar stabbed Yousef, 17, in the heart in Hale Barns on March 2.

He was cleared of murder and manslaughter following a four-week trial at Manchester Crown Court in July, telling the jury he acted in self-defence.

At the time his name was protected, with media banned from publishing any details which would lead to him being identified - until today.

For the first time his name and background can be made public following an order from trial judge Mr Justice Bryan.

Molnar is currently serving 16 months in a Young Offenders Institute.
