Coventry Men Jailed For Brutal Murder
Two men from Coventry have been handed life sentences for the brutal attack on Lee Brooks
19 year-old Drew Thorpe from Hollis Road and 48 year-old Stephen Weeks from Hugh Road attacked Lee Brooks last August.
He'd been staying at Weeks' home the night he was attacked - as he sometimes did.
Thorpe was handed 12 years and Weeks, 16 years, with minimum parole, after pleading not guilty to Brooks' murder.
Lee, aged 36, was attacked at Stephen Weeks home on the morning of Friday 26 August.
He was found by officers at around 6:10am with life-threatening injuries following a call from a neighbour who heard people arguing and someone screaming.
Lee sadly died a few days later on 31 August from significant head injuries.
Following the trial Detective Sergeant Michelle Kiedron, from Force CID, said:
“This is a tragic case where a man has lost his life in an horrific and brutal attack.
“Summing up, Judge Griffiths-Jones commented that this was sustained savagery in the face of agonising screams from the victim. He also said that he believed there was a settled intention between the two defendants to kill Lee Brooks using weapons.
“Lee’s family were at court throughout the trail and remain devastated, our specialist officers continue to support them.”
The family of a 24 year old stabbed to death in the Black County has told Heart they are struggling ever day not knowing why he was murdered.
James Brindley was stabbed to death during a night out with friends.
Two teenagers have been arrested after it's suspected they plotted to rob a taxi driver by luring him to a bogus midnight pick-up in Birmingham.
