In 2013, at around 2am, beloved family man Barry Selby was viciously attacked in the bedroom of his home in Bradford by a group of masked men. Mr Selby had tried to prevent his attackers from coming into the bedroom but the door was forced open. The savage attackers shot him in the knee and then proceeded to pour acid all over his body causing 50% burns. Meanwhile his wife hid behind the bed, cowering in terror. Mr. Selby died four days later in hospital, after suffering organ failure. This was the sickening murder of an innocent, hardworking man who died protecting his wife and daughters.
Loved and respected Barry Selby was a family man who enjoyed football and a drink on a Friday night. He had nothing to do with frequent criminal on-goings on the estate, but ended up the victim of the most horrific murder the community had ever faced. It appeared that Barry had been caught in the crossfire of an ongoing feud between his son’s gang and another gang on the estate. One of four men arrested for the murder was Andrew Feather. Feather was accused of driving the killers away from the scene but maintained he was elsewhere in his car at the time. However, CCTV footage captured the movement of Andrew Feather’s Gold Vauxhall Astra. At trial, the prosecution provided detailed CCTV evidence and charts to show the continuity of movements of the Astra and prove Feather’s assisted with the murder as the get-away driver.
Andrew Feather initially faced charges of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and possessing a firearm. The firearm charges were dropped and he was convicted under the principle of “joint enterprise” which allows second parties to be found guilty and was sentenced to a minimum of 26 years for the murder of Barry Selby, which was later reduced to 20 years.
It became one of the first “joint enterprise” cases to go before the court of appeal but despite new evidence, Feathers lost his appeal. However, Andrew Feather’s family have adamantly campaigned for two new reports to be heard at a retrial as they feel these discredit the CCTV footage. The fresh evidence demonstrates the timings by some of the CCTV are incorrect, casting doubt on the movements of Feather’s Astra that night, which the prosecution relied upon for a conviction. If the CCTV evidence falls through then perhaps Andrew Feather is in prison for being involved with a crime he knew nothing about and the real get-away driver is still out there.
