Seven years for stab attack

A MAN who repeatedly stabbed a student before offering to have sex with him was jailed for seven years at the Old Bailey yesterday.

Anthony Jewhurst, 40, a signwriter of Crystal Palace, south London, had been acquitted of the murder of an 18-year-old man in 1988. Last May, he lured Philip Connolly, 20, of Liverpool, to a flat and had stabbed him five times without warning, before saying: 'If I were going to die I would like to have sex with someone. What about you?' He had pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
