Youth sentenced for the murder of Fico Dougan

A teenager who stabbed to death an innocent 17-year-old boy in a violent unprovoked attack has today been sentenced to 14 years’ in prison for murder.

Uriah Gardner, from Mitcham, stabbed 17-year-old Fico Dougan in the heart at an address in Croydon on Wednesday, the 25th of September 2013.

He was found guilty of Fico’s murder in May.

Gardner was in the lounge listening to music on his headphones when a short time later Fico arrived at the property to visit his girlfriend who was also there.

He joined the rest of the group in the lounge where they watched television.

Soon after Gardner got up and went into the kitchen where he took a large cooks knife and began stabbing Fico who was sat on the sofa watching television.

Fico’s girlfriend tried to shield him from the unprovoked and frantic attack.

A two-year-old girl who was also in the lounge witnessed the attack.

The emergency services were called but despite the best efforts of police officers and paramedics, Fico died from a stab wound to the heart.

He was pronounced dead at Croydon University Hospital a short time later.

Gardner left the property and returned to his home address in Mitcham.

The knife that killed Fico was found discarded in a drain close to where the attack took place.

Officers attended Gardner’s home address and found him trying to destroy evidence by burning his clothes in the back garden.
