Three men have been jailed for the fatal stabbing of a man in Slough.

Wa-ays Dhaye, 18, died from multiple knife wounds after being attacked in Thurston Street in August.

Khianni Gordon, 18, who was convicted of murder in April has been jailed for life and ordered to serve a minimum of 19 years.

Kaneel Huggins, 19, and Antwon Clarke, 18, found guilty of manslaughter, were given 10-year and nine-year sentences respectively.

Gordon and Huggins, of Cullyn Road, High Wycombe, and Clarke, of Garratts Way, High Wycombe, were convicted following a five-week trial at Reading Crown Court.

Gordon was also convicted of perverting the course of justice, a charge admitted by Huggins at an earlier hearing.

Mr Dhaye, who was born in Holland but lived in Slough for 10 years, was stabbed while walking home after spending August bank holiday at the Notting Hill Carnival.

He died later in hospital.

Det Ch Insp Kevin Brown of Thames Valley Police said the three had "hunted down" Mr Dhaye following a minor altercation between two groups at the Notting Hill Carnival.

"The three of them left Wa-ays dying in the street and it was members of the public who found him and came to his aid.

"A family has lost their loved one in an incredibly devastating and traumatic way."

Mr Dhaye had been due to begin a computer science course at Hertfordshire University the following month.

An earlier family statement said they were "heartbroken and devastated" by his killing.
