TWO teenage gangsters have been found guilty of stabbing 17-year-old Jodie Chesney to death in a "pathetic" turf war as she sat with pals listening to music.
The girl scout collapsed and died in her boyfriend's arms from an 18cm deep knife wound in Romford, East London, on March 1.
Slaughtered Jodie was the "blameless" victim of a petty respect row involving a local drug gang and was not the intended target.
Svenson Ong-a-Kwie, 19, and a 17-year-old boy were found guilty of her murder today at the Old Bailey.
Their co-defendants Manual Petrovic, 20, and a 16-year-old boy were cleared of murder after the jury deliberated for six hours.
Members of Jodie's family, including father Peter and sister Lucy, erupted with cheers of "yes!" and clenched their fists as the guilty verdicts were delivered.
Earlier, there were tears from Jodie's sister as the not-guilty verdicts were delivered for murder charges against Manual Petrovic and the 16-year-old boy.
Jurors heard during the trial it wasn't clear who had inflicted the fatal wound, which came within a few millimetres of fully penetrating her whole body.
Chilling CCTV footage showed Jodie walking with pals to the children's play park in Harold Hill just moments before she was stabbed in the back.
There was no CCTV footage of the attack on Jodie that night, but images were retrieved of shadowy figures getting out of Petrovic's car and running into Amy's Park seconds earlier.
The 17-year-old defendant claimed in his evidence that Ong-a-Kwie had been looking for people he had "issues with in the past".
In turn, Ong-a-Kwie said the 17-year-old told him he stabbed someone, thinking it was another youth called "Tash".
Jodie collapsed "in shock" before collapsing in the arms of boyfriend Eddie Coyle, 18. Jodie tragically died on the way to hospital despite medics battling to save her.
Eddie broke down as he relived the final moments of her young life - including how the knifeman brought the blade down on her shoulder as she sat on a bench.
He told the court: "She started screaming continuously- screaming two minute straight. After she stopped screaming she began to faint.
"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."
As hero passers-by rushed over to help, one traumatised pal saw a "hole" in the teen's back as her white jacket turned red with blood.
The 17-year-old, who can't be named, sobbed as she recalled how Jodie screamed before her eyes rolled back in her head and she passed out.
She said: "I saw a hole. I could clearly see that she had been stabbed because the jacket she was wearing had fluff on the inside and the jacket had been ripped and it was coming out and the fluff was originally white, and you could just see blood."
Jurors were told Jodie was stabbed after she got caught up in a "pathetic" drugs turf war over £20 "Pineapple Express" cannabis.
