A teenage boy who stabbed his sister’s secret boyfriend to death at the family’s Watford home last July has been jailed for seven years today (March 8).
The 16-year-old had seen his sister and the victim, Risaan Udayakumar, engaged in “sexual activity” after looking through her ground floor bedroom window.
The brother mistakenly thought she was not consenting and was being raped and stormed into the house in a rage.
After searching his sister’s room, he found the frightened boyfriend hiding in a darkened garage.
There he stabbed the 18-year-old university student Risaan, three times with a long bladed knife causing a fatal wound on the left side of his chest.
In January he had gone on trial and pleaded not guilty to murdering Mr Udayakumar and the jury found him guilty of manslaughter through loss of self-control.
More information to follow shortly.
