A group of men accused of killing a father-of-five in Ipswich have been found guilty of murdering him.

Before Ipswich Crown Court are Jason Ruby, 45, of Risby Close, Ipswich, Tecwyn Parker, 48, of Downside Close, Ipswich, Daniel Kaganda, 24, of London and Amiadul Islam, 25, of London.

All four had denied murdering Dean Stansby on February 8 last year.

The 41-year-old suffered stab wounds in Ancaster Road that evening and was rushed to Ipswich Hospital, where he later died.

During the trial, which started in April, the court heard Mr Stansby came into Ipswich on the evening of his death to buy drugs from the “AJ and Sky” ring.

Jacob Hallam QC, prosecuting, alleged that Parker, Ruby and Kaganda had gone to confront Mr Stansby in retaliation for an earlier incident in which he had allegedly tried to rob Parker of some drugs.

He claimed Islam was in telephone contact with his three co-defendants during the confrontation in Ancaster Road.
