A 34-year-old man who stabbed a man to death in a Stoke-on-Trent street has been jailed for life.
Lee Shaw, of Community Drive, Smallthorne, murdered Dalbagh Singh Malhi, who was on his way to a party, in Bentilee in May last year.
Mr Malhi, 29, known as Bugsy, died in hospital following the attack in Wellfield Road.
Shaw was sentenced at Stafford Crown Court to life in prison, with a minimum of 20 years.
Mr Malhi's father, Swaran Malhi said after the sentencing: "The loss of Dalbagh has devastated the family.
"The sentence given could never compensate us for his loss."
