Maesteg stabbing: Stuart Worvell jailed for 12 years

A man found guilty of stabbing to death a stranger who called at his Maesteg home has been jailed for 12 years.

Thomas Sutton, 20, died after being stabbed nine times by Stuart Worvell in June last year.

Worvell was convicted of manslaughter in March after a jury found him not guilty of murder.

Cardiff Crown Court had heard Mr Sutton and his friend Kyle Harris, 18, had called at Worvell's house believing to be a party there.

Worvell claimed he had acted in self-defence.

But Judge Mr Justice Wyn Williams KT today told him: "You committed a significant, serious, unlawful attack on Kyle.

"Nothing leads me to believe you have shown any remorse. Certain aspects of your behaviour in court lead me to the opposite conclusion."
