Uzun was beaten to death by one of the teens after two got out of their car and assaulted the paperboy while he was on a lunch break from his paper-round with a friend, Mohammed Qaraday.

Qaraday testified that the attackers' car drove by them several times, the passengers staring intensely. Uzun reportedly stared back, at which the car turned around and stopped, with two of the teens coming toward Uzun.

Qaraday said that one of the two shouted racial abuse at Uzun, of Turkish descent. The same teen delivered the fatal blow, striking him in the head with a baseball bat.

A woman who saw the incident also testified and originally provided police with the licence plate number of the car.

Sentencing will take place on Monday for the three youths, aged 19, 18 and 16. One was convicted of the killing, while the other two were found guilty of accomplice to murder.

Prosecutors are seeking for the 16-year-old to be sentenced to a prison term rather than a juvenile detention centre.
