The barrister defending the two 15-year-olds accused of murdering Damilola, said that a boy matching his description was seen playing with a bottle.
He also said there is mobile phone evidence that proves the two 15-year-olds were too far away to have carried out the attack.
He added that there were no fingerprints found on the bottle.
He suggested that Damilola played down the alleged attack when he was found by a builder because he did not want his parents to know he had been playing with broken glass.
The 10-year-old bled to death in November 2000 in the stairwell of a block of flats on a North Peckham estate in London.
Two boys cleared
Last week the judge told the jury that another 15-year-old boy accused of the crime should be allowed to go free.
And four weeks ago a 17-year-old boy was also let off after the judge said that he wasn't sure that a very important witness was telling the truth.
