A teenager has been jailed for life for stabbing a 19-year-old man to death in Blackpool.
Robert Heneghan, 19, of Palatine Road, Blackpool, stabbed Sam Be in the chest after a disturbance at an address on Dean Street on 14 August.
Mr Bee left the address and was found in the back yard of a hotel nearby. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Heneghan was found guilty of murder and a judge at Preston Crown Court ordered him to serve a minimum of 19 years.
A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Bee died as a result of a single stab wound to the chest.
Lancashire police said the case was "a tragic and unnecessary loss of life".
