A 22-year-old man has been found guilty of the manslaughter of organist Alan Greaves on Christmas Eve in Sheffield.

Alan Greaves, 68, was attacked with a pick-axe handle as he made his way to St Saviour's Church, in High Green, Sheffield, on 24 December.

Ashley Foster, 22, of High Green was cleared of murder after a trial at Sheffield Crown Court. Jonathan Bowling, also 22, of Pitsmoor, Sheffield, had earlier admitted murdering Mr Greaves.

Speaking to reporters after the verdict, Maureen Greaves said she hoped the two men would be inspired by God to ''true repentance'' for their crimes.

''Alan.. would not want any of us to hold on to feelings of hate and unforgiveness,'' she said.
