Ipswich: Man Jailed For Manslaughter

A 22-year-old man from Ipswich has today been sentenced to 10 years in relation to the death of Lee Jackson from Chesterton Close, Ipswich.

Police were called to flats in Chesterton Close at around 4.52am on Saturday 22nd October 2011, following reports that a man had been stabbed.

Lee Jackson, aged 43 years was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Following a two-week trial at Ipswich Crown Court, Sebastian Kornjaca, an electrical engineer of St Anthonys Cresent, Ipswich was found guilty of manslaughter on 9th May 2012.

The jury had heard how Mr Jackson had been subjected to a serious attack resulting in 27 stab wounds.

Detective Chief Inspector, Neil Luckett from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team who lead the enquiry said:

"Today's sentencing at Ipswich Crown Court reflects the circumstances of this case. 

There is no doubt that Sebastian Kornjaca made a deliberate attempt to disguise himself and carried out this attack on Lee Jackson, which according to the verdict was due to his temporary loss of control. Unfortunately the result of this violent attack was that Lee Jackson received 27 stabs wounds, which eventually killed him.

I hope that this sentencing can bring some closure to Mr Jackson's family and friends and our thoughts are with them at this time."
