Pair jailed for murdering man for £20 and phone

Two people who murdered a man in a Northampton churchyard have been jailed for more than 40 years between them.

The pair targetted Jamie McMahon as he made his way home from a night out with friends last October.

The court heard how Mr McMahon was targetted for no other reason than to steal from him. His killers- 20 year old Mark Lewis and 33 year old Michael Francis- got away with just £20 and a mobile phone.
