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.”
