Teen Jailed For Killing Two In Ipswich
A teenager who stabbed two men to death on a traveller site during a row sparked by a can of Red Bull has been jailed for a minimum of 17 years.
Nelson Smith was just 17 when he used a carving knife with an eight-inch blade to kill Barry Street, 32, and Nathan Oakley, 18.
Smith's trial at the Old Bailey in London heard he killed the men after a mass brawl involving men and women travellers at the council-run West Meadows site in Ipswich, Suffolk, in December.
He argued he acted to defend his father, who was being attacked by the two victims and another man.
But a jury convicted him of father-of-three Mr Street's murder and the manslaughter of Mr Oakley after a three-week trial.
There were outbursts from Smith's family and friends in the public gallery as he was handed a life sentence, including a shout of ``he got what he deserved'' and ``there will be more to come'' as the victims' relatives sat below them in court.
Sentencing the impassive Smith, Mr Justice Spencer said the row that sparked the violence had been a ``trivial'' argument over a caravan plot at the site.
The trial heard Mr Street had been accused of throwing a can of Red Bull through the window of a teenager due to take up the plot, which was next to his family's.
The judge said: "The two stabbings took place within seconds of each other in an episode of violence which lasted no more than a few minutes.
"But the consequence is that there are two grieving families who have lost their loved ones forever.
"They will never come to terms with their loss.''
