THE KILLERS of Joshua Harling have been sentenced.

Nathan Braim, 20, of Broadwaters Avenue, Thame, was last week convicted of murder, conspiracy to cause GBH and carrying a weapon in a public place

Benjamin Eyles, 19, of Monks Hollow, Buckinghamshire was convicted of the lesser charge manslaughter and conspiracy to cause GBH

Joshua Harling, 19, was killed on the night of July 22 last year.

He got into his green VW Polo to drive away after a street fight with Braim and Eyles – jurors at Oxford Crown Court have previously heard – but crashed on Chinnor Road, Thame. His car landed upside down. 

Despite desperate attempts from doctors who lived nearby and paramedics, he died at the scene.

Days earlier on July 18, the defendants had plotted revenge on Mr Harling after he was said to have threatened a member of their group at a social gathering in Elms Park. 

They told a friend they planned to 'jump him' and were spotted searching for him in the evening armed with 5ft metal poles. 

The next time they saw him was on July 22. 

Today at Oxford Crown Court the pair were sentenced by Judge Ian Pringle QC. 

They were sentenced to: 

Braim: custody for life, minimum term 19 years. 

Eyles: 8 years in custody for manslaughter.
