Four people were convicted today, Monday 20 November, in connection with the murder of Ashley Dale at her home in Liverpool in August 2022. After a seven-week trial, the jury found James Witham, Sean Zeisz, Niall Barry and Joseph Peers guilty of murder. The 28-year-old young man was killed with the Skorpion machine gun. Four men tried to kill Ashley’s boyfriend Lee Harrison, a British court has heard. Local police reported the situation.
Detective Chief Inspector Cath Cummings said: “Ashley, an innocent woman, lost her life in the most brutal way while alone in her home where she should have felt safe and secure.” The reasons for so much violence are explained in the voice message that Ashley herself sent to her friends. This happened after an argument broke out at the Glastonbury festival between the victim’s boyfriend and one of the killers over a drug debt. “Terrible anxiety” over the theft of £40,000 worth of cocaine was revealed in audio recordings.
While the criminal commando was filling the house with bullets, Ashley was shot in the stomach while trying to escape through the back door and reach the garden. A secondary victim of the fight between small criminal groups for control of the drug trade.
