A 46-year-old man has been sentenced to at least 23 years in prison for stabbing another man to death in the toilets of a Wrexham pub.
Francesco John Prevete stabbed 34-year-old Craig Maddocks 52 times at the Cambrian Vaults pub, in the early hours of 26 June last year.
He denied murder, but was found guilty on Tuesday.
This morning, at Mold Crown Court, the judge said he would receive a life sentence, and the minimum term he should serve before he could apply for parole would be 23 years.
He described Prevete's actions as 'brutal and ferocious.'
