Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
A teenager has been sentenced to nine years' in jail for stabbing a man 12 times at a house party in Milton Keynes.
The 17 year-old boy, of no fixed address, who we can't name for legal reasons, pleaded guilty at court on Friday and sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court.
The sentence relates to an incident at a house party at Ashby, Eaglestone, Milton Keynes on Sunday 25 October 2015.
During the party, sometime between midnight and 1am, the 17 year-old was involved in an altercation with an 18 year-old man, during which the defendant produced a knife and attacked his victim, causing 12 stab wounds to the victim's body, back, arms and legs. He turned on another man, aged 19, and assaulted him, causing a cut to the side of his head.
The 18 year-old man was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
Investigating officer, Det. Con Ian O’Bryne, of Force CID based at Milton Keynes police station, said:
"The sentence given reflects the severity of the incident, which can only be described as a deliberate and frenzied attack.
This case serves as a reminder that if you carry or use a weapon, then you can expect prosecution and the possibility of a lengthy custodial sentence".
