THE KILLERS of innocent Ben Kinsella were jailed for life last week and warned that their own lives may be at risk from revenge attacks inside prison.

Juress Kika, 19, and Michael Alleyne, 18, who hid out in Chadwell Heath after the murder, and Jade Braithwaite, 20, all received letters from police after death threats were made against them.

Each of them will spend a minimum of 19 years behind bars for brutally stabbing 16-year-old Ben to death on June 29 last year.

The totally unprovoked attack was sparked after Braithwaite and his gang thought one of Ben's friends had "disrespected" them outside Shillibeers bar in Islington.

Ben, who was a straight A student, had been there celebrating the end of his exams.

After a row outside the nightspot, blameless Ben, who had no part in the fight, was chased down the street, cornered by the thugs and knifed 11 times.
