Four men who stabbed a 20-year-old to death on a Cardiff street over a 'love triangle' have been jailed.
Daniel Roberts and Christopher Griffiths, who both stabbed Malaciah Thomas, were given life sentences with a minimum term of 25 years while Awez Jamshiad, who was the get away driver, was sentenced to custody for life with a minimum term of 11 years.
Saif Shazhad, who was found guilty of manslaughter, was sentenced to 7 years and six months at a young offenders institute.
Cardiff Crown Court heard how Malaciah had been caught in a love triangle with his teenage sweetheart and Daniel Roberts.
He was stabbed several times in his back, arm, chest, stomach and face as he sat in his car in Grangetown in Cardiff last July - just two days before his 21st birthday.
CCTV footage showed Roberts jumping kicking in the window of the silver Ford Fusion car while Griffiths appeared to block the passenger door.
Malaciah briefly escaped his car, only to be chased down by his attackers and stabbed again.
Neighbours and emergency workers tried to save him but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Malaciah's sister, Ashanti, said they 'should have been celebrating his 21st birthday' but instead were mourning his death:
Delivering the sentence, the Judge, Mrs Justice Jefford said it was a 'ferocious and calculated attack', and Malaciah Thomas didn't 'stand a chance'.
South Wales Police said the case highlighted the 'devastating' consequences of knife crime:
The Crown Prosecution Service added that it was a 'cowardly' attack which gave the victim 'little chance of protecting himself'.
