Sean Kelly murder: Two jailed for street knife attack
Two men have been jailed after chasing a man down a Cardiff street on bikes and attacking him and leaving him gravely injured.
On Friday, Aaron Bingham, 18, was jailed for life with a minimum of 18 years for murder, and Nicholas Saleh, 46, for nine-and-a-half years for manslaughter.
Both were found guilty by a jury after a trial at Cardiff Crown Court.
They had been on bikes and chased Mr Kelly down Theodore Street with weapons.
During the three-week trial the jury heard how Mr Kelly, a father-of-two, tried to run away from his attackers when they chased him down the city street in the early hours of 13 July 2017.
It was then Bingham stabbed him in the left leg, severing an artery and causing significant blood loss.
The pair then cycled off and left him injured in the street.
“After this vicious and unprovoked attack Bingham and Saleh rode off and disposed of the knife.”
She also said Mr Kelly was described by his family as “not an angel” after a life of drug dealing and violence, but said he did “nothing to deserve being stabbed to death”.
