Girl Accused Of Killing Her Alleged Molester

9-7-2010 United Kingdom:

Prosecution says girl, 14, stabbed man she accused of assaulting her after she heard he would not face charges...

Robert Daley, 45, was stabbed in the heart when the girl and a male friend, also 14, called at his home in Stockwell, south London, on 23 April, the Old Bailey was told.

Jonathan Rees QC, prosecuting, told the jury that the girl, her 16-year-old sister and a woman had made claims of sexual assault against Daley. Despite the claims, all three continued to have contact with him.

Rees said Daley was telephoned on the morning he died by a police officer who told him the Crown Prosecution Service had decided to drop the case. Daley then telephoned the older girl, who then contacted the 14-year-olds.

Five minutes after the boy and girl arrived at the flat Daley had been stabbed and lay bleeding on the floor. Two of the stab wounds had penetrated his heart.

Rees said the boy was understood to be claiming that he used the knife while trying to defend himself and the girl.

The girl denied taking part in the stabbing, but claimed that during the visit Daley sexually assaulted her in the kitchen and the boy stabbed him to help her get away.

Rees said: "There is evidence that she later told people close to her that it was she who stabbed him. It is the prosecution case that both defendants were responsible."

The defendants, now 15, deny murdering Daley. The trial continues. ..Source..

Teen girl fatally stabs sister's alleged molester

9-29-2010 New Zealand:

A 14-year-old British girl stabbed a man to death after finding out he would not be prosecuted for allegedly sexually assaulting her older sister, a court has heard.

Robert Daley, 45, was killed at his home in London in April on the same day he was told by police that the case against him had been dropped, according to the BBC.

The court heard that he called the 16-year-old girl after finding out he would not be charged.

She replied with a text message saying: "Stop calling and texting me. I really don't want anything to do with you. You are a perverted man and I can never forgive you.”

She then called her younger sister and her sister's boyfriend, who went round to Mr Daley's house.

They claim the 14-year-old boy stabbed Mr Daley five times, including twice in the heart, after Mr Daley sexually assaulted the girl in his kitchen.

But the girl later bragged to her friends that she was the one who stabbed the victim, the prosecution said.

Mr Daley was arrested earlier this year after the older sister told police he had sexually assaulted her.

The younger sister also claimed Mr Daley had pestered her for sex since she was 11-years-old, but never made an official statement.

The charges against Mr Daley, an alcoholic and drug user who lived with his partner of eight years, were dropped.

Both girls continued to contact Mr Daley after he was arrested, with the younger sister allegedly asking him for money.

The court was told their father is in jail in the UK, and their mother is in jail in the Caribbean island of Grenada for drug trafficking.

The case is expected to last three weeks. ..Source.. by MSN NZ

4-27-2010 Scotland:

A 14-year-old British girl is being held over the death of a man she accused of attacking her.

Robert Daley, 45, was stabbed to death in the doorway of his Brixton flat on Friday in what local media is describing as a "vigilante" attack.

Just 10 days earlier, the Crown Prosecution Service had refused to press charges against the unemployed builder despite the 14-year-old's allegations.

The girl is now being held in relation to the murder, with an 18-year-old man also arrested, the Daily Mail reports.

Mr Daley was found conscious by neighbours lying in a pool of blood after being repeatedly stabbed in the chest.

He was only able to give his first name to paramedics before dying from his injuries.

The CPS declared it had insufficient evidence to prosecute the unemployed builder on April 13 following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police child protection team.

Mr Daley was also alleged to have assaulted the girl's 18-year-old half-sister.

Scotland Yard confirmed a teenage girl had been arrested while the 18-year-old man had been bailed to return in May.

Neighbours were shocked to hear of the claims against the alleged pedophile, with one describing him as a "gentle giant". ..Source.. by ninemsn staff

Boy 'stabbed suspected paedophile after he grabbed girl'

10-6-2010 United Kingdom:

A teenage boy told the Old Bailey today that he stabbed a suspected paedophile to death after the man grabbed a schoolgirl round the neck.

The boy and girl, who were both 14 at the time, had gone to Robert Daley's flat in Brixton, south London, after prosecutors dropped a sex abuse case against him.

Within minutes he had been stabbed five times in the side in his kitchen.

The teenagers, now both 15 and who cannot be identified because of their age, deny murdering Mr Daley, 45, in April.

The youth told the court the girl went into the kitchen with Mr Daley and a few minutes later, he heard "choking and grappling sounds".

The youth said: "I saw him pinning her to the worktop. He had his left hand on her throat and his right hand was trying to touch her.

"She was trying to get his hand off her throat and also trying to keep him from touching her."

He said a struggle broke out as he tried to pull the girl away and was hit in the face.

He allegedly saw Mr Daley reaching for a knife - and grabbed one himself for protection.

"I knew he went to get a knife. I looked round for what I could use as a weapon. I got scared because of all the stories he had told me.

"In the kitchen sink I found a black-handled knife. I assumed he was going to get one and stab us.

"I told him to stop screaming at me. He was not paying any attention.

"His hand was close to the knife - that's when I poked him."

The youth said he continued to "poke" Mr Daley until he managed to free the girl.

The trial was adjourned to tomorrow. ..Source.. by The Independent
