Two robbers who stabbed a drug dealer during a botched armed raid were convicted of murder today.

Michael Henry, 39, of no fixed address, and Mark Brown, 35, of Brixton, south London, will be sentenced to life later this month.



Old Bailey Judge Paul Worsley warned them they faced a possible minimum term of 30 years each.



They were also convicted of robbery and Brown was found guilty of possessing a firearm with intent.



The men killed Sunny Eze, 33, at his flat in Campbell Close, Shooter's Hill, south London, in March last year.



Brian Altman QC, prosecuting, said Mr Eze appeared to have been using his flat to manufacture crack cocaine.



He said Mr Eze had been stabbed in the back and had two other stab wounds.
