The family of Janusz Smoderek, a Polish factory worker who was stabbed to death in Boston in 2011, has been described by his family as "a loving person who was loved by everyone and who did not deserve what happened to him."
He was killed by 38 year old Stephen Sleaford, who has today been jailed for life.

We would like to thank the police for their thorough investigation and for all the support received throughout the whole ordeal. We will always remember him as a wonderful husband, father and grandad and he will always live in our hearts
