Teenager convicted of murdering Steven Grisales named for first time as Ochaine Williams
A teenager convicted of murdering a student after a conker fight has had his anonymity lifted at The Royal Courts of Justice today.
Ochaine Williams, 16, of Victoria Road in Edmonton, was jailed for a minimum of ten-and-a-half years at the Old Bailey in June for the murder of 21-year-old Steven Grisales in Edmonton on August 31 last year.
Williams, who was 15 at the time of the killing, was also handed an additional 18 month sentence.
Mr Grisale’s parents made an appeal of an Unduly Lenient Sentence, calling for Williams to be given a longer jail term.
The youth has not been legally named in the press before today as he is less than 18 years old.
However, the court made the decision to lift the section 39 reporting restrictions which prevents youths aged 17 and under from being named in the media.
Mr Grisales was stabbed through the heart in College Close in Edmonton as he walked to Silver Street station after collecting his grandmother’s shopping.
It is believed Williams, who was friends, started throwing conkers at Mr Grisales who confronted the group.
The 15-year-old proceeded to stab the student through the heart.
Mr Grisales, who was born and raised in the UK but whose parents are Columbian, had been studying architecture for a year-and-a-half in Argentina.
He had flown back to the UK on August 5 to complete his studies at Westminster University.
