A man has been jailed for 15 years for killing a man and seriously injuring two others in Cambridge.
19 year old Ade Adeniran, was sentenced today (December 10), at Cambridge Crown Court. Adeniran from Hanover Court in Cambridge, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The attacks happened during the early hours of March the 3rd this year when Micaijah Brown and the two others made their way to a flat in Hanover Court looking for a man they had had an argument with earlier that morning. Adeniran stabbed Micaijah several times in the leg, he was treated by paramedics but died at the scene. Adeniran then ran after the other two men and attacked them in the street, they both suffered serious injuries and were treated at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
Detective Inspector Dan Pawson said:
"This case highlights the tragic consequences of knife crime and should act as a reminder of the devastating impact it can have: a family are now without a son and father and a young man will now spend a number of years behind bars. While cases like this are extremely rare in Cambridgeshire one case is one too many.'
Today Micaijah's family said:
"We would like to thank Cambridgeshire police for their hard work in dealing with this case. Whatever the outcome it will never reflect the loss we feel."
