Youth jail murder 'not racially motivated'

PUBLISHED February 18, 2005

The murder of an Asian teenager at a youth jail by a fellow inmate was not racially motivated, a public inquiry heard today.

Two of the UK's most senior forensic psychiatrists told the inquiry that it was prisoner Robert Stewart's psychopathic disorder, not racist beliefs, which led him to kill 19-year-old Zahid Mubarek when they shared a cell at Feltham Young Offender Institution in west London five years ago.
