    Social affairs correspondent, BBC East Midlands Today

    I’ve just spoken to Paul Fyfe's wife Tracey on the phone - she told me: "I’m quite disgusted with the result. 

    "We believe he is guilty of murder and that this retrial has been unfair. I’m pleased he’s been convicted of manslaughter. I hope the sentence fits the crime, but I don’t hold out much hope.”

    Jogee's mother Rachel Whitehead was thrilled by the decision of a retrial.

    She said: "He wasn't even in the property, he wasn't aware of that man's actions. I'm just so looking forward to him coming home."

    She hadn't been aware of the joint enterprise law until her son's first trial - she then argued it was a "lazy law" that had convicted innocent people.

  12. Jogee: What happened that night

    A bit of background to what actually happened that night...

    In court it was explained that Paul Fyfe was in a relationship with Naomi Reid.

    Jogee and Hirsi were at Miss Reid's house on 10 June 2011 but she asked the pair to leave before Mr Fyfe returned from work. When they left Miss Reid sent a text message to Jogee asking him not to bring Hirsi over again.

    Hirsi and Jogee

    The two men then went back to the house after Mr Fyfe had returned. Hirsi took a knife from the kitchen and threatened Miss Reid but Mr Fyfe stood between the pair and ended up being stabbed in the heart.

    Jogee had been jailed for life with a minimum of 20 years - he'll find out his new sentence next week.

    Paul Fyfe

    During his two-week retrial the court heard Jogee was actually standing on the doorstep when Paul Fyfe was killed.

    It was 25-year-old Mohammed Hirsi who actually stabbed the father-of-three in the heart.

    A 27-year-old man from Leicester has had his murder charge changed to manslaughter.

    Ameen Jogee had been jailed under the "joint enterprise" law over the death of ex-policeman Paul Fyfe in June 2011.

    The Supreme Court ordered that Jogee be retried after ruling the law on joint enterprise had been wrongly interpreted for 30 years.
