Two teenagers are jailed for life after killing a man by stabbing him more than 100 times with a samurai sword.
Launching Sky News, 2 teenage boys named Kiyran Earnshaw (18) and Luke Gaukroger (16) confessed to having killed Robert Wilson in a “massive” and “senseless” attack on Huddersfield in January.
Wilson also appeared begging the 2 teenagers to stop the attack, but both of them became increasingly violent and carried out brutal attacks.
The prosecutor added that the two teenagers had stopped attacking and caught their breath.
The prosecution also continued that the two teenagers had both killed the poor man by joining their powers.
Police who arrived at the scene reported that they saw one of the teenagers trying to cut off the victim’s head with the samurai sword.
Seeing this, the police immediately shot Earnshaw with a taser twice before finally arresting the teenager and other officers freezing Gaukroger with PAVA spray.
Robert Wilson left the factory when 2 young men, Earnshaw and Gaukroger were seen pacing in the car park outside the factory.
Wilson, came out with two other colleagues, Paul Thewliss and John Badejo.
When the 2 teenagers attacked Wilson, Paul Thewliss and John Badejo were also seriously injured for trying to help Wilson.
The two men were then forced to flee for the safety of their lives.
When he was caught, Earnshaw rambled and asked why he was arrested.
He even complained that the police had abused him.
Earnshaw told officers that he had consumed cocaine and the sedative Xanax.
The teenager was then examined to find out what substances he had consumed.
Apparently, the results showed that Earnshaw was taking the drug Flualprazolam, an artificial substance similar to Xanax that causes drowsiness, confusion and loss of consciousness.
The two teenagers confessed to killing Wilson and confessed to seriously injuring Badejo.
The judge sentenced Earnshaw and Gaukroger to life imprisonment with minimum terms of 22 years and 16 years.
