A raging teenager who stabbed a father-to-be to death after a birthday party at a Wolverhampton pub is beginning a custodial sentence of at least 16 years.

Michael Brown was locked up for life after being found guilty of murdering 29-year-old Andrew Diack in what the judge described as "yet another case" of a knife being casually carried by a young man in public.

Brown, aged 19, admitted manslaughter but denied murder. He clenched his fists in frustration as the jury returned its verdict at Wolverhampton Crown Court yesterday.

Brown, of Langley Road, Merry Hill, gatecrashed a party that Mr Diack was at in February last year. Mr Diack hit a bottle over the head of Brown, who was said to have been "loud and obnoxious."

Brown chased him and stabbed him once in the heart.
