A life sentence has been handed down to an adolescent boy who knifed a young father-of-two to death in the street.
Bryon Pollock was 17 years old when he murdered Christopher Hewett with a ‘fighting dagger.’
A 15-year-old kid, who cannot be named because of his age, was found guilty of manslaughter for his role in the attack and will be punished next week.
The 31-year-old victim was on his way to his sister’s Stevenage home, where family members were gathered to say farewell to their dying grandmother, according to St Albans Crown Court.
There was an ‘exchange of words’ before violence broke out. He was struck with a baseball bat by the 15-year-old and then stabbed by Pollock.
