A man from Colchester has been jailed for 25 years for conspiring to murder his stepfather.
Clacton: No Charges Over Murder
No one will be convicted over the murder of 21-year-old Liam Mearns in Clacton last December.
There were twelve arrests shortly after he was stabbed to death in Wellesley Road, eleven subsequently being released without charge.
The final individual, a 32-year-old man from the town, has now also been released without charge.
Police thoroughly investigated Liam's death and obtained much detailed information, working closely with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), who have given very careful consideration to all the evidence.
A decision was then made, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, that there was insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction.
The Police, therefore, have been advised that no further action should be taken against the man arrested in this case.
Should any further evidence become available then the Crown could reconsider this decision.
Essex Police and the Crown Prosecution Service say they treat all allegations involving deaths very seriously and decisions, such as the one taken here, are not taken lightly.
They have offered their condolences to the family of Mr Liam Mearns.
