Michael Burrows QC sees gunman jailed for life over murder

Mon, 18 Nov 2019

Michael Burrows QC of No5 Barristers’ Chambers has seen Keanu Bedward jailed for life for the fatal shooting of Remal Hunt.

The shooting, in broad daylight on Church Road in Erdington, came about after a “chance” meeting between factions of two rival gangs.

Bedward, who fled to Dubai immediately after the killing, was sentenced to life with a minimum of 30 years at Birmingham Crown Court after denying murder.

The jury was told Bedward, 24, of Norfolk Road, Erdington, dumped the revolver in a weighted bag in Bartley Green Reservoir before boarding the flight to Dubai where he remained for 10 days before returning to the UK.

The court had heard the shooting came against a background of social media messages and a previous shooting in which Mr Hunt’s DNA was found on a shotgun. The 28-year-old father of three was shot in the chest on April 18 this year.
