Pedestrian In Collision With A BMW On The Avenue On Friday Night
Man Jailed Over Boscombe Stabbing
A man has been sentenced to eight years in prison after being found guilty of manslaughter.
Mark Haylock, 50, stabbed 29-year-old Nicholas Ormerod in a flat along Sea Road in Boscombe on Thursday 7th April 2011. The attack followed a dispute regarding missing tablets.
Nicholas Ormerod, from Southbourne, staggered out of the flat into Sea Road at the junction of Hawkwood Road, where he collapsed.
Nicholas died during the early hours of Friday 8 April 2011 at Royal Bournemouth Hospital. The post mortem revealed that he died as a result of a stab wound to the chest.
Haylock, of no fixed abode, told the jury that he acted in self defence – he was convicted of manslaughter at Winchester Crown Court on Friday 16th March 2012 and sentenced to eight years behind bars.
Acting Detective Sergeant Helen Deakin, of Bournemouth CID, said:
“Nicholas’ death is a sad reminder of the dangers of knives and I would like to make it clear that Dorset Police will use the full force of the law to deal with anyone who keeps such items about their person.
“If Mark Haylock had not equipped himself with such a dangerous weapon it is more than likely that Nicholas would still be here today to live a full and active life.
“The past eleven months have been a very difficult time for Nicholas’ family and I would like to express my thanks for their continued restraint and patience.”
Officers say many of those were after people didn't secure their car properly.
James Hemming pleaded guilty to wounding with intent after a 17-year-old girl was badly injured in Fratton.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
