James 'Pancake' Taylor pleads guilty to Liverpool stabbing

A man who went on the run has pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm after being extradited from the Netherlands.

James "Pancake" Taylor, 34, was arrested in Amsterdam in July over a knife attack on a man in Liverpool.

He had been wanted by police since Lee Siner, 26, was stabbed at Kimos restaurant on Myrtle Street in the city on 1 October 2010.

Taylor will be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court on 30 August.

He also pleaded guilty to possession of an offensive weapon.

In December 2011, Anthony Richardson, 34, from Liverpool, was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison at Liverpool Crown Court for wounding with intent in relation to the attack on Mr Siner.
