A SCHOOLGIRL who stabbed to death a talented musician when she was 14 has been jailed.
The killer, now aged 15, plunged the blade into the chest of 24-year-old Nimroy Hendricks.
Nim, as he was known by friends, knew his attacker — who cannot be named for legal reasons.
Experts said the girl was suffering a “significant abnormality of the mind” at the time of the 2020 attack in Crawley.
Her admission of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility was accepted by Bristol crown court.
She was sentenced to nine years, five in custody and four on licence.
Det Chief Insp Andy Wolstenholme, of Sussex Police, 说: “Nim was so caring. He was a talented musician who loved life.”
