Bailey Gwynne was just 16-years-old when he was stabbed to death by a fellow fifth year pupil, who cannot be named for legal reasons.


Bailey received fatal wounds to his chest at Cults Academy in Aberdeen, Scotland last October, and today his murderer was handed down a nine year sentence. The perpetrator was also found guilty of having a knife and knuckledusters at school.


According to reports, the incident started over a biscuit with Bailey refusing to give a group of boys a second one. after being stopped by the youth in the corridor, punches were thrown before Bailey was stabbed in the heart with a knife.


"If you had not carried a knife, the exchange of insults between you and Bailey Gwynne would have led at worst to a fist fight ... and certainly not loss of life,” Judge Lady Stacey told the teenager.


"Nothing that I can say nor any sentence that I impose will do anything to lessen the grief that Bailey Gwynne's family and friends feel. The shock of the death at such a young age was felt in the wider community; nothing I can say or do can alleviate that."


Describing the row as a "silly, trivial fight between two school boys'', prosecutor Alex Prentice QC said "Bailey Gwynne had no chance."
