Stephen Lawrence pair face murder trial

Two men are to stand trial over the murder of Stephen Lawrence.

Gary Dobson, 35, and David Norris, 34, are accused of killing the black teenager at a bus stop in Eltham, south-east London, on 22 April, 1993.

Nobody has been convicted of the crime, but a small team of Scotland Yard detectives has continued to investigate the 18-year-old's death.

Mr Dobson stood trial in 1996 over the murder - which he denied - and he was acquitted.

Mr Dobson and Mr Norris were arrested last September over the murder and are in custody. The allegations could not previously be reported for legal reasons.

Their trial is due to take place in November at the Old Bailey.

The BBC's Daniel Boettcher, at the Court of Appeal, said that Mr Dobson's trial could not have previously taken place under the double jeopardy rule, which prevented a suspect being tried a second time for a crime.

"Up to a new piece of legislation in 2003 it was not possible to face a fresh trial on the same allegations," our correspondent said.

"That so-called double jeopardy rule was changed. The new law was actually introduced in 2005. But there is this level that has to be reached, that judges have to be convinced that there is new and compelling evidence to allow that fresh trial."

Mr Lawrence's parents, Doreen and Neville Lawrence, have continued to campaign for their son's killer to be brought to justice.

all i know is that in this country a poor woman has her son murdered because of his skin colour and is then mocked by his killlers for 20 odd years and mocked by its justice system

this is justice in my book

Finally, the fact that they are on remand and denied bail is a good sign, fingers crossed the bastards will get sent down

Perhaps if you're an uneducated back water middle eastern mouth-foaming fundamentalist, but here in the west we frown upon such draconian and primitive methods of punishment

Cutting a guys hand off so he eats and wipes his arse with the same set of digits is not cool over here bro

Do it to Chapati Jilpati but not my Sarah

I totally agree with you but me its not about stephens character or even the suspects it the fact that justice should be faceless and unbiased and for such a major case to expose that the justice n legal system right from arrest to high court is a pick and choose lottery depending on colour faith and class..a blank slate from the beggining to end is our right every persons living right....how can u have a biased justice system that's a infringement on everyones humans right
