Trio guilty of Ben Gardner 'Halloween hat' murder
Three men have been found guilty of murdering an IT worker on Halloween 2009 in a row over his girlfriend's hat.
Allanna Devine's pirate's hat and black wig were snatched by a group of men outside a kebab shop in Sutton, south London. Ben Gardner, 30, was punched and kicked after asking for them to be returned. CCTV cameras caught the attack.
Daniel Ransom and Ross Collender, both 21, and Jordan Dixon, 18, of Carshalton, had denied murder.
