Murderer Jake Rollinson’s sentencing hearing has been adjourned to a new date to be arranged.

The date for sentencing was due to happen today (Friday, February 25) but has been postponed.

The last adjournment was down to a request for Rollinson to see a psychiatrist before he is sentenced over the killing of 16-year-old Joseph Whitchurch.

Rollinson, 20, of Hickings Lane, Stapleford, was convicted of the murder of Joseph Whitchurch on Wednesday, September 1.

Joseph was stabbed at least four times by Rollinson on Boxing Day morning, and died on December 29, 2020.

Rollinson and Richardson, 25, of Blake Road in Stapleford, were charged with perverting the course of justice and both have pleaded guilty to that charge, and must be sentenced for it.
