A British teenager accused of stabbing a fellow holidaymaker to death faces a one year wait in a Greek prison cell until he gets a trial.
Myles Litchmore-Dunbar, 19, was remanded in custody yesterday charged with the murder of 19-year-old Tyrell Matthews-Burton.
Tragic Tyrell was stabbed to death during a terrifying 30-man brawl outside a nightclub in the holiday resort of Malia, Crete, last Tuesday morning.
Litchmore-Dunbar denies stabbing Tyrell and says he has no idea how a bloody knife was found in his hotel room following the brutal fight.
He admitted he was involved in the brawl but claims blood found on his clothes during the aftermath was there because someone who was bleeding must have fallen onto him during the fracas.
In a statement given to police, read out in court Litchmore-Dunbar said he did not stab Tyrell and says he has no idea how one of three bloody knives were found in his hotel room.
Myles’s statement read: “When I got back to my room I took all my clothes off and left everything there.
“The bloodstains came from while we were fighting, someone that was bleeding hard fell down on me and my clothes were full of blood but I don’t remember if that was the guy who died or someone else.”
When asked about a knife found in a shoe in his room he said: “Both me and my friend have Nike shoes. It could be his.” Continue Reading….
What a mess. But like I said before innocent until proven guilty.
Rest In Peace Tyrell Matthews-Burton.
