Aamir Siddiqi murder: Jason Richards blames co-accused


A drug addict on trial for murdering a teenager in a bungled contract killing has blamed his co-accused for the brutal stabbing.

Jason Richards, 38, said he was at home when Aamir Siddiqi, 17, was attacked in Roath, Cardiff, in April 2010.

Mr Richards claimed Ben Hope, 39, burst into his home covered in blood and demanded a change of clothes minutes after Aamir was killed.

Both men, from Cardiff, deny murder at Swansea Crown Court.
