Five men have been jailed at the Old Bailey following the murder of a builder in broad daylight as he returned home from work with his father.
38 year old victim Zydrunas Laurinavicius was attacked by three men outside a school in Hendon shortly before 5 pm on the 3rd of July 2014.
Mr Laurinavicius was a Lithuanian national, who lived in East Ham, and was returning home from work with his father when he was brutally murdered.
The pair were working together on a residential property undergoing a refurbishment.
They were walking towards a bus stop on Parson Street when the group targeted them.
Zydrunas was stabbed to death whilst his father had a knife put to his throat.
Zydrunas’ work bag and watch were stolen during the attack.
The Homicide and Major Crime Command launched a murder investigation and through the use of Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology they quickly arrested and charged one of the suspects who was traced in a vehicle that was seen to flee the scene.
Witnesses to the attack, CCTV and mobile phone analysis connected all five to the murder.
