'Harry Potter' Actor Robert Knox's Murderer Convicted


The young man charged in the stabbing death of 18-year-old "Harry Potter" actor Robert Knox has been convicted, The Associated Press is reporting.

Karl Bishop, 22, could face up to life in prison for the murder after a London jury found him guilty on Wednesday (March 4). Bishop had previous convictions for knife crimes.

Knox, who plays Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," was stabbed to death in a brawl outside of the Metro Bar in South East London last May. He was killed as he tried to protect his younger brother after Bishop, armed with two kitchen knives, attempted to enter the pub. The actor suffered five wounds — one of which fatally severed an artery in his chest — and died later that evening.

Knox had just finished shooting "Half-Blood Prince" at the time of the incident, and had already signed on to reprise the role in the seventh and final installment of the franchise, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

In a statement read to the court, Knox's mother, Sally, said, "As a mother and parent, I can never forgive the person responsible for taking my son Robert's life, or the devastation that has been caused by these actions."

"Living my life without my son in it is like having a daily nightmare," Knox's father, Colin, said in a statement. "Those people that have nightmares will wake up in the morning and say, 'Thank God it was only a nightmare,' and their life returns to normal. The opposite is my new way of life. I live my nightmare daily ... I miss him so much it breaks my heart. All I have are memories to remember him by."

Health: Product Alert - EBO Beard Butter

BVM: Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

EBO: Hello my name is Edward Oliver Jr but everyone calls me Ed..I created #EBOBeardButter in 2014.. What inspired me is that I've been growing my beard since 2012 and it grows but it didn't have that feel or that look I wanted.. it was rough and hard to manage..So I searched the Internet for products and found some but they didn't cater to my type of hair to be honest.. It was more for people with straight hair which my hair isn't..so I talked to my mom about helping me make my own stuff because she makes organic products..So about May 2014 I started experimenting and came up with something to use for myself but it wasn't until fall 2014 that I decided to sell it...
