A teenager has been jailed for the brutal murder of Ealing teenager Jason Isaacs.
Joel Amade, 19, of Eastwood Road, Ilford, was found guilty of the murder of Jason Isaacs at the Old Bailey on Wednesday, April 17.
He was sentenced at the same court today (Tuesday, May 28) and told he will spend a minimum of 20 years behind bars.
Talented footballer Jason went out on a Saturday night in November 2017 with his friends, but just hours later he was stabbed to death in Northolt.
After the sentencing, Detective Inspector Simon Deefholts said: “This has been a complex and harrowing investigation and we can only imagine the emotion felt by Jason’s family today.
“Amade is a dangerous young man who took another teenager’s life in cold blood, and today he will have no choice but to face the consequences of his brutal actions.
“As a team we would like to praise the bravery of Jason’s family, who have endured this process with remarkable dignity.
“Our enquiries into Jason’s death will continue and we echo Mrs Kendall’s call for more people to come forward about knife crime.
