Steven Ray jailed for life for murder of Rory Hemming
A man has been jailed for life for stabbing a man to death during a row that "spiralled out of control".
Steven Ray stabbed Rory Hemmings, 29, in the chest at a house in Errington Crescent, Sheffield, in November.
Mr Hemmings had gone to visit his ex-partner, who was then in a relationship with Ray, when an argument escalated into a fight.
Ray, 36, of Thornburgh Road, Heeley, was found guilty of murder at Sheffield Crown Court.
He was given a minimum 12-year jail term on Thursday.
Det Ch Insp Craig Jackson, of South Yorkshire Police, said Mr Hemmings was speaking to his ex-partner when Ray intervened and "the situation spiralled out of control".
"The struggle continued into the kitchen, where Ray stabbed Mr Hemmings in the chest with a knife he picked up from the draining board."
Mr Hemmings died at the property.
His mother previously paid tribute to the father-of-two and said his daughters were his "absolute world".
