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.”
