Could You Tell Me if Rhys Jones’ Parents Split up Or Stayed Together? Little Boy Blue Is the Story of Mel and Steve.
Tonight’s screening of Little Boy Blue will serve as a memorial to the tragic life of Rhys Jones (May 24).
The shooting occurred in broad daylight as the 11-year-old was returning home after football practice in August 2007.
Steve and Mel Jones have been working hard ever since their son’s death to honor him.
However, after 13 years, have Rhys Jones’ parents reconciled?
What follows is a complete and comprehensive explanation.
How’s the Relationship between Rhys Jones’s Parents?
The marriage of Rhys Jones’ parents has survived.
They’ve been married for 33 years after meeting at work in 1982; both of them used to work at Tesco.
Mel’s book Stay With Me, Rhys reveals, however, that the couple did split up for a while after the death of their son.
We felt like we were moving in different directions,” Steve remarked in a 2018 appearance on ITV’s This Morning.
As Mel put it, “There will always be someone missing from our family.”
Together they raised Owen, and they all rallied behind each other during the trial of Sean Mercer, 18, who was accused of murder.
And How do Mel and Steve feel about LittleBoy Blue?
The parents of Little Boy Blue star Rhys Jones played significant roles in the production.
The four-part series was a joint effort between ITV and the family to celebrate their son’s life.
“We saw this as an opportunity to let the public see what happens to a family like ours in a situation like this,” Mel said.
“We wanted to show how the pressures we were placed under, the enormous weight of grief thrust upon us, the endless waiting, not knowing if we would get justice for Rhys,” they said.
‘We spoke quite frankly to the series producers about what we went through because we wanted to let Sean Mercer and the others involved in Rhys’ murder know that our sentence never ends,’ she continued.
Where is Rhys Jones’s Murderer Now?
The minimum punishment for the murder of Rhys Jones that Sean Mercer received was 22 years in jail.
The murder, which occurred when he was only 16 years old, was presented in 2008 as a “accident,” a claim he maintained throughout his trial.
In an earlier court appearance this year, Sean argued for a lower sentence.
