A SECOND man has been found guilty of murdering Stratford man Tristram Wallace.

Peter Mallon, 42, had previously admitted the manslaughter of the 36-year-old during a town centre attack on the afternoon of ‪June 22.‬

But the jury of eight men and four women returned a majority guilty verdict on the charge of murder and ruled Mallon, of Rumer Close, had intended to kill or seriously harm Mr Wallace.

Donna Windsor, 38, of Betjeman Road, admitted manslaughter on the opening day of the trial at Birmingham Crown Court but was found not guilty of murder.

The jury were unable to reach a majority verdict on the murder charge for Toney Jelf, 39.

He had already pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

As the verdicts were read out, Mallon, who was dressed in a blue denim shirt, did not react while members of the public gallery cried ‘yes’.

Windsor, who was wearing a grey hoodie and black t-shirt, stood impassively in the dock as did Jelf, who was in a green jumper and jeans.

The latest verdicts come after Neil John Potter, 37, was found unanimously guilty of murdering Mr Wallace on Monday (May 9).

During the five week trial, Potter, of Clopton Road, had denied both murder and manslaughter – claiming he was acting in self-defence.

The foursome are expected to be sentenced this afternoon (Tuesday).
