Shevaun Sorrell death: Man jailed for Deptford murder
A 29-year-old man has been jailed for life for stabbing another man to death in south-east London.
Shevaun Sorrell was discovered fatally wounded in Creek Road, Deptford, on 25 August last year. He was taken to hospital but died soon afterwards.
A jury at the Old Bailey found Dana Powell, from Lewisham, guilty of Mr Sorrell's murder by a majority verdict of 10 to two.
Powell, who denied the killing, will serve a minimum of 25 years in prison.
A post-mortem examination found Mr Sorrell died from a stab wound to the chest.
Det Ch Insp Mick Norman said Powell "faced overwhelming evidence that he was responsible for the death".
"I hope that Shevaun's loved ones gain a measure of comfort from today's sentence," he said.
