October 26, 2016

A Jamaican man was jailed in the United Kingdom for stabbing another man to death inside an Internet cafe.

STAR Online understands that 39-year-old Jamaican Douane Brown stabbed fellow countryman Horace Williams in the neck at the shop in Smethwick in April.

According to bbc.com, after a five-day trial, a jury at Birmingham Crown Court found Brown, from Bickington Road in Birmingham, guilty of murder.

Brown was told he must serve at least 21 years behind bars.

Reports are that on the day in question both men exchanged glances across the cafe. It is said that Brown later pulled a folding knife from his jacket pocket and launched the attack on the now deceased.

Investigators theorise there was some history between the pair, but the attack was seemingly spontaneous and not prompted by any aggression from Williams.
