Teenager Conor Black died minutes after he was stabbed


An illiterate teenager who was convicted of stabbing a boy to death at a house party in Manchester has been given a life sentence.

Shane Boyd, 16, will serve at least 11 years for murdering Conor Black in an argument over a Xbox games console.

Conor, also aged 16, collapsed and died minutes after being stabbed outside the house in Moston last August.

Boyd, who boasted that he was "the man" after the attack, was found guilty at Manchester Crown Court last month.

Judge Clement Goldstone QC sentenced him to life, to serve a minimum of 11 years before he can be considered for parole.

Boyd had admitted manslaughter but his plea was rejected by the court.

The court heard Boyd confronted Conor outside a house party in the early hours of 16 August over the alleged theft of an Xbox console.

Boyd came out of the house and smashed his victim over the head with a can of lager, before stabbing him in the back as he turned to escape, the jury heard.

Conor ran a short distance to a grassy area where he collapsed and died.

The court heard Boyd then stood in the road shouting that he "was the best", he "was the man" - before threatening to kill anyone who mentioned his name to police.

Judge Goldstone said: "You had already armed yourself with a knife.

"Having seen him you asked someone for a beer can with which you hit him over the head and after he was walking away from you in something of a daze, posing no threat to you, you stabbed him once in the back.

"Your initial response was to gloat and to boast to anyone who would be impressed by what you had done."

After the sentencing Conor's family released a statement through Greater Manchester Police saying they were devastated by his death.

"All the hopes and dreams of a family were crushed when Conor's life was stolen in that terrible, violent way," it said.

"His mum lost her friend, her child, her life and that makes us so very sad and helpless."

Det Ch Insp Serena Kennedy, of Greater Manchester Police, said Conor's death had shown the devastating impact knives could have.

"One boy's family is grieving the loss of his life, and today the defendant, himself a boy, will start spending his life in prison," she said.

Boyd's cousin, John Boyd, 20, of the same address, was sentenced to three years in a young offenders' institution for assault and perverting the course of justice.

The court heard that he threatened a 16-year-old witness he mistakenly believed had told police that Shane Boyd was a murderer.
