Followup: Man Convicted in Murder of Potter Actor Rob KnoxMovies
Last May, we learned the tragic news that actor Rob Knox, a young actor who will be seen as Marcus Belby in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, had been murdered in London. Today, the BBC reports that a jury has convicted Karl Bishop, 22, and found him guilty of the stabbing of Rob Knox. The BBC states "Mr Knox was stabbed five times as he defended his brother
Jamie from Bishop, the court had heard. Five other people were also
stabbed in the fight." The PA also reports that on the night of the murder:
"Bystanders saw his face "screwed up in rage" as he lashed out with the blades, stabbing his victims at least 10 times in less than two minutes. Rob, 18, had rushed outside to try to protect his younger brother Jamie after hearing Bishop had threatened him. But he ended up being stabbed five times, once fatally in a main artery, and dying later in hospital."
