Man admits murdering Liverpool fan in 'random' attack

Alex Jarmay

An unemployed man has admitted stabbing a Liverpool football fan to death in a London bar.

Alex Jarmay, 26, from Bromborough, Wirral staggered out of the Bar Uno, in Camden, before collapsing after what appears to be a random attack in February.

He had travelled to the capital with his brother Luke and friends to watch the Reds play Cardiff in the Carling Cup Final, which Liverpool won the next day.

Paul Beck, 29, of, Kentish Town, north London, pleaded guilty to murder at the Old Bailey.

His brother Damien, 24, of the same address, pleaded guilty to wounding Luke Jarmay. His plea of not guilty to murder was accepted.

Outside court, Detective Inspector Mark Lawson said: "We have watched CCTV and this appears to have been a random attack.

"They did nothing to provoke this attack. The friends had gone out for a quiet night out before the match. They were not looking for trouble. We just don't know what happened. The worst thing is that it could have been anyone."
