Life for car jam stabbing
A YOUTH who stabbed a teenager to death as he sat in a car in a traffic jam has been jailed for life.
Ceepreon Christian, 16, opened the passenger door and knifed 17-yearold Shyheim Jones twice in the leg.
One of the stab wounds severed an artery and Shyheim died hours later of massive blood loss.
Christian, of Small Heath, Birmingham, launched the frenzied attack after having a long running dispute with the teenager, of Handsworth Wood, who had overtaken his friend’s car.
He was jailed for life with a minimum of 16 years after he was convicted of murder at Birmingham Crown Court.
Judge William Davis QC told him: “Yet again a young man carrying a knife has resulted in the death of another young man.”
