Aamir Siddiqi: Hitmen Jason Richards and Ben Hope guilty

Two men have been found guilty of murdering a teenager by mistake in a "staggeringly incompetent" contract killing.

Aamir Siddiqi, 17, was at home with his parents in the Roath area of Cardiff when two men burst in and stabbed him in April 2010.

Ben Hope and Jason Richards had been hired by a businessman to kill a man who lived in a neighbouring street but they targeted the wrong house.

They will be sentenced next week.

Caroline Evans reports.
