Wayne Wardle, a 19 year old resident of Wellstone Garth, Bramley, Leeds was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum incarceration of 20 years for stabbing Sean Rodgers, a 20 year old father of a three year old child. The stabbing occurred after Wardle had put away 10 pints of cider and several Jack Daniels at a pub where both individuals were visiting. The men became involved in an argument outside the pub, with Wardle apparently losing face in an exchange involving their girlfriends.
Desiring revenge, Mr. Wardle contacted the victim on the phone later in the evening and managed to arrange a late-night confrontation between the two of them. In the ensuing altercation, he stabbed Mr. Rodgers in the abdomen with a butterfly knife. Mr. Rodgers died as a result of the injuries.
Strike another blow for the stupidity of drunken violence. I just wish these idiots would lay off the Jack Daniels.
