A man has been jailed for life for the murder of a Derby father-of-two.

Lee Samra, 34, from Sinfin, was stabbed at a property in Chalkley Close, Alvaston, in October 2010.

He managed to get into the road and call for help but died soon after. A post-mortem examination showed he had suffered a knife wound to the heart.

On Monday, Royston Whittle, 38, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to murder at Nottingham Crown Court and was told he must serve a minimum of 18 years.
