Family of knife victim Marc Williamson angry at jail sentence

The parents of a County Armagh man stabbed to death say they are "devastated" that his killer will be freed in a little over three years.

Marc Williamson, 21, was stabbed in the neck by Denver Cardwell in Portadown in August 2011, in an apparently unprovoked attack.

Outside court, a solicitor for the Williamson family said he would be writing to the attorney general to appeal against the "leniency" of the sentence.

Gordon Adair reports.
