Just hours later, she was knifed in the back as she sat with her friends playing music and smoking cannabis, the Old Bailey was told.

Jodie’s boyfriend today fought back tears as he described to jurors the moment she collapsed in his arms.

Eddie Coyle, 18, showed the court how the knifeman allegedly brought the blade down from shoulder height into Jodie’s back, before he caught her as she fainted.

Eddie demonstrated the blow on three occasions to the court, clenching his first in the downward stroke, as Judge Wendy Joseph, QC, asked for clarification of how the killer struck.

He said of his girlfriend Jodie: “She was in shock at first she did not know what had happened.

“She started screaming continuously- screaming two minute straight. After she stopped screaming she began to faint.”

Eddie said he saw the two attackers leaving but was trying to chat to Jodie at the time she started falling.

She started screaming continuously- screaming two minute straight. After she stopped screaming she began to faint.

He said: “I managed to catch her and put her on the floor.

“She was wearing a thick jacket, so we did not how bad the wound was. There was a lot of blood.

“After I cried out for help two ladies came out. I said she had been stabbed. They said “Really?”

“And I said “Yes,”.

“Then they gave as much help as they could.”

The court has heard that Jodie was the innocent victim of a petty respect issue involving a drug gang.

Boyfriend Eddie told how she went into shock after being stabbed – before screaming continuously for two minutes and then falling unconscious.

He recalled how two youths approached Jodie as they sat with friends in a park and the taller of them stabbed her.

Eddie said : “All I remember is her laughing one second….,“ before he trailed off.

Continuing his evidence, Eddie said he was standing in front of Jodie, who was sitting on a bench with her back towards the side entrance of Amy’s Park, in Harold Hill, East London.

He came right behind Jodie as well. They were about a metre apart from each other. The taller one swung his arm out and then stabbed Jodie in the back. Right round at shoulder’s height and round the side.

Eddie went on: “I saw two men walk towards us from the side entrance. I couldn’t really hear them, I saw them as they were walking along the path.

“The shorter one came through the gate, they came towards us. Then the taller one came right up behind Jodie.

‘He(the shorter one) came right behind Jodie as well. They were about a metre apart from each other.

‘The taller one swung his arm out and then stabbed Jodie in the back. Right round at shoulder’s height and round the side.

“I saw something small and dark. I couldn’t really see what it was.

“I thought he was going to punch her. The taller one stabbed her in the back.”

Eddie stood up as he then visibly showed the jury how 19-year-old Svenson Ong-a-Kwie allegedly swung his right hand at shoulder height.

Eddie said police then turned up, followed by an ambulance and Jodie was carried off on a stretcher.


He and Jodie had been going out for three months at the time, having met at Havering Sixth form College, where they were students.

Asked what type of person she was, Eddie said: ‘She was a great person very funny, silly, sensible sometimes.”

Ong-a-Kwie,of Romford, Manuel Petrovic, 20, of Collier Row, and two boys aged 16 and 17, deny Jodie’s murder.

The trial continues.
