A third person has been sentenced over the murder of a homeless man who was found beaten to death near to a tent he had been living in.

Jimmy Buckley, 20, has been indefinitely detained under a hospital order, after he was found to be mentally unfit to plead to the murder of Razvan Sirbu.

Mr Sirbu, 21, was beaten to death last year in Tovil, Maidstone.

Two other men were found guilty of his murder in January.

Charlie White, 19, and Alex Macdonald, 19, were jailed for a minimum of 16 years and a minimum of 18 years, respectively.

Mr Sirbu had suffered multiple injuries to his head and body after being subjected to a sustained and unprovoked assault with weapons including a meat cleaver.
