    Chilling texts boy, 14, accused of Ava White murder sent to mum as girl, 12, was dying

    The chilling texts a boy accused of murdering Ava White sent to his mum as the 12-year-old was dying have been revealed in court.

    Ava White’s alleged murder texted his mum to say he was going to “end up going the cells for noting”.

    The 12-year-old girl was stabbed in the neck during an incident involving a teenage boy in Liverpool city centre, The Liverpool Echo reported.

    Boy A, 14, from south Liverpool, cannot be named for legal reasons and denied murder and manslaughter.

    Prosecutors have said that he stabbed Ava after she pushed him during an argument over him filming her and then posting it on Snapchat.

    After stabbing her, Boy allegedly smirked, laughed and ran away, leaving her to die.

    After that he began a “cover up” by discarding his knife, designer coat and mobile phone.

    A jury has heard how the boy accepts responsibility for fatally injuring Ava on November 25 last year but argued it was in self-defence.

    The second day of a trial at Liverpool Crown Court saw CCTV footage of the stabbing that took place around 8.35pm.

    The jury was later shown various clips of Boy A and one of his friends, Boy B, 14, running away from the scene and heading out of the city centre.

    Boy A ditched the knife near some derelict houses and put his designer coat in a blue bag in a wheelie bin.

    The court heard that the knife wasn't recovered by police until March 16, months after the stabbing and only when Boy A told officers where to find it.

    DNA evidence matching Ava was identified on the blade.

    Boy A's two other friends, Boy C, 16, and Boy D, 13, headed to the same area on the edge of the city centre, where they split up.

    Boy D was later arrested at a bus stop on Great George Street.

    Footage was played of the three other boys going into a Go Local Shop on Parliament Street at around 9pm where Boy A was shown using his phone in the store.

    Charlotte Newell, QC, prosecuting, said around 15 minutes later, a series of texts were exchanged between Boy A and his mum. Police had gone to her home and she had called her son, but he hung up.
