A thug who stabbed a black teenager to death in 2006 is released from prison.

Peter Connolly murdered Christopher Alaneme, 18, after the teen was chased by a gang of five white men on holiday on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent.

Nigerian-born Christopher grew up in Penge, south London, but had moved to the coastal town because he felt it was safer.

The teenager, who had lived in the Blue Town of Sheerness for about two years, was fatally stabbed in the abdomen during the attack on the High Street on April 21. He died about an hour later.

Maidstone Crown Court heard during Connolly’s trial in 2007 that one of the five men had made a racist remark against Christopher, but the judge ruled the attack was not racially motivated.

Connolly, a painter and decorator from Peckham, South East London, who was 29 at the time, was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 15 years.

However, after a trial hearing in November, Connolly has been found fit for release, according to The Sun.

Members read and digest hundreds of pages of evidence and reports in the run-up to a hearing.
