Jail for life: man murders teen at party
A MAN has been jailed for life for murdering a teenager in Inverclyde.
Steven McIntyre, 19, killed Jack Doyle, 17, by stabbing him in the back. The victim’s body was found in Antigua Street, Greenock, on 3 January.
McIntyre must serve a minimum of 15 years before being eligible for parole.
At the High Court in Glasgow, co-accused Kevin McIntyre, 28, who had admitted slashing Mr Doyle on the face minutes before he was murdered, was jailed for five years and six months.
During the trial, the jury heard that Mr Doyle and his killer met at a party in Antigua Street. He was then assaulted by Kevin McIntyre, who was also charged with Mr Doyle’s murder but pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of assault.
Temporary judge Sean Murphy QC told Steven McIntyre he would be detained without time limit.
