A vigilante gang leader who battered a Hayes teenager to death for spitting at his elderly father is facing a life sentence today (Thur).
Myles Cadogan, 24, and his friends targeted 19 year-old Fuad Buraleh, of Clayton Road, Hayes, for punishment less than half an hour after the incident on a bus in Ealing.
The Somalian victim was punched, kicked and bludgeoned with a bottle until he suffered multiple fractures of the skull and jaw.
Myles' 67 year-old father Carl, who had summoned his son to 'sort it out', watched the gang chase the victim to his death in a park before calmly getting a bus home.
Jurors at the Old Bailey convicted Myles Cadogan, of Brondesbury, of murder yesterday (Wed) after deliberating for 20 hours and 13 minutes.
Father Carl Cadogan, of Hanwell, and Myles' friends Scott Baker, 22, of Long Drive, South Ruislip, Lee Beavis, 26, of Windermere Avenue, Eastcote, Anthony Sheehan, 22, of Northolt, and Richard O'Donoghue, 24, of Hanwell were cleared of both murder and manslaughter.
But all five were convicted of violent disorder for their part in the attack in Dene Gardens, west Ealing on January 26 this year.
Judge Timothy Pontius yesterday adjourned sentencing the gang until today.
Baker was on licence after being released early from a two year sentence for possession of cocaine with intent at the time of the attack and Sheehan was also in breach of a 12 month conditional discharge for possession of cocaine dating from August 2007.
O'Donoghue has a previous conviction for robbery, Myles Cadogan for possession of a prohibited weapon, Carl Cadogan for common assault in 1997, and Beavis for racially aggravated threatening behaviour in May 2002.
