Anthony Wood

Anthony was out with a group of friends when 2 of them - Matthew and Louise started to argue. Matthew suddenly attacked Louise.  Most of the others ran off, and Anthony tried to stop the attack. Anthony was then attacked himself and forced to leave under threat of violence from Matthew.

Matthew admitted killing Louise and it was proved in court that Anthony never touched Louise and that he attempted to stop the attack.

Anthony fully co operated with the police and is now serving 23 years Joint Enterprise for 'planning' the attack and Matthew is serving 18 years having pleaded guilty therefore not brought to trial.

Anthony has been granted leave to appeal.
