Manslaughter verdict for cyclist's 'road rage' killer

A 35-year-old man who stabbed a pensioner thirty-nine times in a road rage killing has been cleared of murder, but convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

The jury at Lewes Crown Court in Sussex returned its verdict after hearing that Matthew Daley had a history of mental illness.

Daley stabbed Don Lock, 79, to death after their cars were involved in a minor collision last year. Daley's family had pleaded with experts for him to be treated for mental health problems.

Duncan Kennedy reports on the background to the case.
