A TEENAGER who killed pen­sioner Richard Man­ning­ton Bowes dur­ing the London ri­ots can be named as Dar­rell De­suze af­ter an or­der ban­ning his iden­ti­fi­ca­tion was lifted.

The 17-year-old had been pro­tected be­cause of his age but a judge re­moved the or­der at In­ner London Crown Court to­day a day af­ter he ad­mit­ted man­slaugh­ter.

De­suze, of Bath Road, Houn­slow, punched Richard Man­ning­ton Bowes to the ground on Au­gust 8 last year dur­ing ri­ot­ing in Eal­ing, west London.

Mr Bowes, who had been try­ing to put out a fire in a dust­bin near his home, suf­fered brain dam­age when his head hit the pave­ment.

He died three days later in hospi­tal.

De­suze ad­mit­ted man­slaugh­ter when he ap­peared in court on Tues­day.

He also pleaded guilty to vi­o­lent dis­or­der and had pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted bur­glary at Wil­liam Hill, Tesco Ex­press, Block­busters and Fat­boys Thai res­tau­rant.

Mr Jus­tice Saun­ders said the public had a right to know what hap­pened and who killed Mr Bowes, a re­tired ac­coun­tant.

De­suze, who a year be­fore the ri­ots en­joyed a school trip to the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice’s riot train­ing cen­tre in Gravesend where he watched a sim­u­lated riot with of­fi­cers pelted with bricks, still faces a charge of mur­der but the Crown will not pur­sue it and it is ex­pected to lie on file.

Brian Alt­man QC, prose­cut­ing, said on the evening of the killing De­suze, known as Smokey, set off for Har­row with friends.

But they headed to Eal­ing af­ter get­ting a text from some­one an­tic­i­pat­ing trou­ble there.

The bar­ris­ter said left-handed De­suze threw his full weight be­hind a punch to Mr Bowes’s jaw, buck­ling his legs, knock­ing him un­con­scious and back­wards where his head took the full force of im­pact on the road.

De­suze’s mother, Lavinia De­suze, 31, will stand trial on Mon­day ac­cused of per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice by de­stroy­ing the clothes he wore on the night.

De­suze will be sen­tenced next month. YOU think you’ve got noisy neigh­bours?

Ian Gowler and his part­ner Mavis Shailes got the shock of their lives when the bun­ga­low next door EX­PLODED in the wee hours!

The force of the blast ripped the roof off the home and sent the front door hurtling 70ft into the air.

It sent glass show­er­ing across the front gar­den and left 2ft long shards em­bed­ded in a nearby car.

When the sun came up in Lev­er­ing­ton, Cambs, a scene of ut­ter dev­as­ta­tion was re­vealed.

But, amaz­ingly, Ian and Mavis’s home was UN­TOUCHED by the blast.

Thank­fully, the bun­ga­low was un­oc­cu­pied at the time of the ex­plo­sion – thought to have been caused by me­tal thieves rip­ping out pipes.

Ian said: “I heard a loud bang and the wall bowed in­wards.

“Mavis has a shelf with dolls on it on that wall and ev­ery­thing was pelt­ing at me.” A WOMAN was tor­tured for her bank de­tails and then beaten to death in her home by a man who needed money to pay for his wed­ding, a jury has heard.

An­ge­lika Dries-jenk­ins, (left) 66, from Nar­berth, Pem­brokeshire, was killed by John Wil­liam Ma­son in June 2011, it is claimed.

He was due to get mar­ried days af­ter the mur­der and with­drew £1,000 from the vic­tim’s bank ac­counts.

He tor­tured her to get her to re­veal her PIN num­ber be­fore steal­ing her hand­bag and her Skoda Fabia car, leav­ing her dead or dy­ing, the jury was told.

Mr Ma­son, 55, de­nies mur­der and the trial at Swansea Crown Court con­tin­ues.
