A 16-year-old girl has appeared in court today accused of hiding a shotgun used in a drive-by murder in Sudbury.

Romario Green, 20, was blasted in the chest in Harrow Road, following a row with some men in a Ford Focus in the early hours of July 2, 2015.

The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Hammersmith Youth Court charged with possessing a firearm and perverting the course of justice.

Robert Simpson, prosecuting, said: “The gun in question, which was one with a shortened barrel, was used in a murder.

“Bearing in mind the nature and seriousness of the offences, I would suggest it is in the interests of justice that the case is sent to the crown court.”

One of the men inside the Ford, Denny Da Silva, 24, from Luton, was earlier convicted of murder and jailed for life with a minimum of 27 years before parole.

Renardo Johnson, 25, of Chaplin Road, Wembley, admitted trying to get rid of a shotgun and a car used in the shooting was jailed for 10 years in November.

The 16-year-old girl was granted unconditional bail ahead of a plea and trial preparation hearing at the Old Bailey on January 19.
