A MODEL who stabbed his fashion rival to death “cried all the way to prison” after being jailed for life, it emerged today.
George Koh, 26, knifed GQ model Harry Uzoka, 25, during a pre-arranged fight to settle a long and bitter feud.
Shocking CCTV footage showed Koh chasing down Harry in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, on January 11 last year with two accomplices.
Harry was cornered behind a red Volkswagen before being stabbed in the heart. He later died on the pavement outside his home as the trio fled the scene.
Koh was jailed for 25 years and has now said he wishes he could “go back in time and change everything”.
Speaking from Belmarsh Prison, he told Metro.co.uk: “I strongly hope that one day someone reads up about my story, takes in my experiences and thinks twice about carrying a knife.”
He described the trial as the “most stressful time of his life” and added: “Every second seemed to feel like an hour, constantly.
“I was wondering how my life would turn out, what to say, how I’m possibly going to adjust to prison life.
I really felt sad and helpless that day. I was speechless. I cried all the way back to prison.
“During the trial, I felt a mix of regret and sorrow for Harry’s family as well as hopeless and lonely. I didn’t have my life and emotions in control.
“I was really lost. I just wished I could close my eyes, go back in time and change everything.’
“When everyone came back into court for the jury to deliver the verdict, my whole life stopped for a small second.
“I really felt sad and helpless that day. I was speechless. I cried all the way back to prison.”
Describing prison life, he added: “You have no choice but to obey orders from the prison, such as what time to wake up, when to get your lunch and dinner, when you’ll be allowed out of your cell.”
The pair had been locked in a bitter dispute after Harry became annoyed with the less successful Koh, who he believed was trying to copy his “look”.
Koh had even bragged to a mutual friend that he had slept with Harry’s model girlfriend Ruby Campbell.
On January 11, Harry and his flatmate Adrian Harper arranged to meet Harry for a confrontation and armed themselves with dumbbell bars.
Jurors heard how Harry was signed to Premier Model Management at the time of his death and had appeared in campaigns for Everlane and GQ whilst Koh had been on the books at IMG Models.
