Boy pleads guilty for killing grandma in Sheffield

A 13-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to causing the d£ath of a grandmother fatally hit by a car in Sheffield.

The minor, whose name was withheld, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on Tuesday, October 3 via a video link and admitted to causing the d€ath of a 60-year-old, grandma identified as Marcia Grant by running her over with her own car in Greenhill on 5 April, when he was 12.
The boy previously admitted a second charge of possession of a kitchen knife.

When he first appeared before court in April, prosecutor Gary Crothers told Sheffield Youth Court that police at the scene noted that the boy said “Is she dead?”, “Looks like I got my first kill?”, and “It was an accident, I swear.”

His lawyer, Ben Campbell said the issue in relation to these comments was “what you can infer from them in all the circumstances”.

Describing the incident, Mr Crothers told the youth court: “At around 7pm on the evening in question this defendant is seen on CCTV attempting to take Mrs Grant’s car.

“Mrs Grant tries to stop him by going behind the car.

“On CCTV, the vehicle is driven slightly erratically at this time and it does come to a stop.

“Mrs Grant positions herself behind the vehicle. The vehicle reverses, causing her to fall on her back and her head impacts with the ground.

“She was trapped under the vehicle, her husband tried to break the window of the car to get the defendant out of the car.”

The prosecutor said the vehicle then reversed “at some speed causing the catastrophic injuries that led to the d£ath of Mrs Grant”.
