A 26-year-old man has been jailed for life for the attempted murder of his 34-year-old housemate in Barnsley last year.
Grant Stanfield originally from Whitby Road, Harworth was found guilty of attempted murder on Wednesday 21 November 2018, following a week-long trial at Sheffield Crown Court.
Stanfield was sentenced to life in prison to serve a minimum of 12 and a half years.
In November 2017, officers were called to John Street, Thurnscoe, after reports of a male with severe injuries to his neck and back.
Grant Stanfield had left the scene in a vehicle taking the victim’s phone with him preventing him calling for help.
Through a quick police response, his vehicle was sighted on the A1 at Doncaster where he was stopped and arrested.
Speaking after the sentencing DC Andy Eshelby said: “The victim has showed bravery and courage throughout the trial, his life has been changed as a result of being seriously injured by someone he trusted, I am pleased that Grant Stanfield received a substantial sentence to reflect the hurt he caused.”
