Man Jailed In Connection With Jay Whiston Murder In Colchester

A man's been jailed for three years after causing affray on consecutive evenings in Colchester, including the night when Jay Whiston was murdered.

He was stabbed at a house party on Marlowe Way shortly after 10pm on Saturday, September 8, 2012. The 17-year-old student from Aster Close died a short time later in hospital from a stab wound.

At the start of this month (May), 18-year-old unemployed Edward Redman was jailed for life after being found guilty of Jay’s murder. Rhys Hennerbry, a 19-year-old unemployed man from Gurdon Road in Colchester, pleaded guilty in 2013 to affray in connection with the stabbing.

On Friday (May 16) he was also found guilty at Chelmsford Crown Court of causing affray. It related to the evening on Friday, September 7 during which a 19-year-old local man was punched and kicked outside a house on St Andrew’s Avenue.

Hennerby was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment for the St Andrew’s Avenue incident and two years’ imprisonment for the Marlowe Way incident, to run consecutively.
