Detective Constable Laura Griffiths from North Wales Police read out a statement from the family of Craig Maddocks, after Francesco John Prevete was sentenced to at least 23 years in prison for his murder, in the toilets of a Wrexham pub last year.
It said: "our lives have been totally unbearable over the last 12 months due to the murder of our son. Craig loved life and loved to make people smile. He was loved and adored by all of his family and friends."
"We as a family will never get over the dreadful circumstances of how Craig died, and our lives will never be the same again."
