A teenage boy has admitted stabbing 17-year-old Jesse Nwokejiobi in a Cambridge park last year.

Emergency services were called to reports of a stabbing at Logan’s Meadow on the afternoon of 19 November.

Ambulance carried out CPR and open-heart surgery on the victim, Jesse, but he was pronounced dead at the scene at 2.56pm.

A four-week trial was due to start at Huntingdon Crown Court on Monday but yesterday (5 July) a 17-year-old boy from London, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Today, a second 17-year-old boy from London, who also can’t be named, pleaded guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and affray.

James Heath, 45, from Harston, also appeared in court and pleaded guilty to assisting an offender. He had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

The court offered no evidence against Helen Heath, 37, from Harston, who was due on trial for the same charges.

“My dearest son, Jesse Nwokejiobi (Ugochukwum), you were the first fruit of my loins; you taught me how to be a mother and watched me do motherhood in spite of the challenges we are prone to along the path of this earthly sojourn” MUM’S TRIBUTE

They will be sentenced on 1 September.

Detective Chief Inspector Iain Moor, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “I hope these admissions in court over the past two days will provide some closure to Jesse’s family.

“Our thoughts are with Jesse’s family at this difficult time.”

Jesse Nwokejiobi died of a single stab wound in Cambridge on November 19 – his mum, Rita, later released this heartfelt tribute

I watched you take your first life step in stride and the day you called me ‘mama’ marked the beginning of hope and expectation for my handsome son.

As you grew older, your light beamed so strong for me and every other member of the family.

You rose to your call as the first son, leading and supporting us regardless of the storms of life that emerged eventually.

You were my anchor, hope, strength, and support system I had and will always have until we meet again.

Jesse Nwokejiobi.

I love the way to stood by us and blessed us with your beautiful smile until the unfortunate incident that whisked you away from us at a very tender age.

At just 17 years of age, you did what grown men could not do; you gave your all in the defence of your family so that we can be happy.

Waking up daily without you is hard; I cannot imagine doing this daily as it seems like a joke even as I write this.

However, I am grateful to you, my boy, for all you did for us in your lifetime.

And I will not disappoint you in any way.

Jesse Nwokejiobi, 17, died of a single stab wound in Cambridge on November 19.

I will trust the Lord God to help me do what you could not do.

I will trust the Lord to help me guide your siblings to lead a fulfilled and beautiful life.

Even though I am weak and helpless in this estate without you, I will trust God to heal our hearts and I will be strong for you and your siblings.

I will miss your smile, calls, hugs, play, music, help, birthdays, prayers, outings, and everything.

My physical time with you is now over, but your memory will live on in our hearts and you will always be remembered for your love and selflessness.

Now rest in the bosom of the Almighty until we meet again.

We all love you, dearest son.

Mom.
