This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 
Our guest today is Michelle Liddle. In February this year, she watched for the second time as two teenagers fought for their freedom after taking the life of her fifteen year old son, Angus Beaumont, in a Brisbane park in 2020.
They were aged just 13 and 14 at the time of the lethal stabbing. One was on bail for armed robbery and the other was on probation.
They both had significant histories of violent assaults. But even though Angus's final moments were captured on CCTV, the boys successfully appealed their initial convictions for his stabbing death and won a retrial.
That judge only trial began in December 2023 and ended with one of the boys being found guilty of murder and the other guilty of manslaughter. They were sentenced to nine years and six years respectively.
However, each of them is expected to serve around half of those sentences.
You can support Angus' family by joining the "Justice for Angus Beaumont" page on Facebook.
