A drug gang member from Peckham has been found guilty of manslaughter for his role in an attack on a rival in Basingstoke.

Jailed: Maccabee

Terence Maccabee, from Radnor Road, was sentenced last Tuesday (February 16) for his role in the killing of eighteen-year-old Taylor Williams, from Bromley.

Taylor was found fatally injured with stab wounds in Shooters Way in Basingstoke on Saturday, August 31, 2019.

During the trial at Winchester Crown Court, the jury heard that the victim was involved in a London-based county lines gang. 

While staying in a flat in a Basingstoke he was attacked by a rival drug gang during an attempted robbery. 

Taylor escaped through a window after being knifed and was found by paramedics following a call to emergency services at 10.34pm.

Shortly after, Maccabee was found nearby, also suffering stab wounds. He was taken to hospital and later arrested.

Maccabee was found not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter during a trial in November last year, as well as being found guilty of robbery, conspiracy to rob and possession of a bladed article. He was jailed for thirteen years.

In January, Olamide Soyege, 29, of Mayswood Gardens, Dagenham, was jailed for life with a minimum of 32 years after being convicted of Taylor’s murder and found guilty of robbery and conspiracy to rob at the trial.

Paige Taylor, 24, of St Michael’s Road, Basingstoke, was also jailed. She was handed seven years for robbery and conspiracy to rob.
