Milton Keynes teenager jailed after pleading guilty to manslaughter after stabbing
The teenager was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court today (March 1).
The teenage boy who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been sentenced to four years and four months’ imprisonment.
The teenager caused the death of 43-year-old Robin Williamson, of Awgar Stone Road, Oxford.
Mr Williamson was assaulted and stabbed with a screwdriver in an incident on 27 October 2019 in Wood Farm, Oxford. He sadly died on 12 November 2019, with a post-mortem later revealing his death was as a result of the assault.
The 17-year-old pleaded guilty to manslaughter on February 4 at Oxford Crown Court.
A 16-year-old boy from Banbury was acquitted of all charges against him.
Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Bosley, said: “I am satisfied that the teenager in this case has admitted his involvement and has now been sentenced.
“This case shows once again the consequences that assaulting someone with a weapon can have and the subsequent impact on family, friends and our communities.
“Our thoughts remain with Mr Williamson’s friends and family and I hope that the sentencing will bring some closure to them.
“I would like to thank Mr Williamson’s family for their support throughout the investigation.”
