Williams of Lixwm Village, Flintshire, and Jones of Denbigh, Denbighshire, were arrested after Mr Dauti suffered a fatal stab wound to the chest while in Gilpin Close.

Senior investigating officer Det Ch Insp Liz Williams, of Hampshire Constabulary, said: "This was an unprovoked, violent and needless attack that Lee Williams and Christopher Jones carried out to satisfy their own greed.

"I extend my sincere condolences to his parents and his fiancee for their loss, I hope this verdict goes some way towards easing their pain."
