A teenage woman faces prison for killing a 15-year-old boy who was stabbed at a Tube station.

Victoria Osoteku, 19, was said to be at the heart of the attack at Victoria station in London which resulted in Sofyen Belamouadden being knifed in front of horrified commuters.

She was seen on CCTV kicking him in the head as he lay dying on the ground after the attack by rival school pupils. Sofyen was stabbed nine times to the body and suffered wounds to his heart, a lung and major blood vessels.

Osoteku was found guilty of manslaughter at the Old Bailey yesterday in the latest of a series of trials of 20 defendants from south London. She was the only female charged in connection with the March 2010 incident.
