Case synopsis:

Anthony Declan Campbell, 49, was stabbed to death at a neighbour's house in Fulham on 16 October 2013.

The father-of-four was one of two men found injured at an address in Stephendale Road at around 6.30pm.

A postmortem gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the liver.

The second man, his flatmate Danny O'Gorman, 50, [26/08/63], of Stephendale Road, Fulham, was arrested on suspicion of murder. He was charged the following day.

O'Gorman went on trial at Luton Crown Court in May 2014. The prosecution case was that he stabbed his friend to death in a drunken row.

He told police at the scene that he picked up a knife and stabbed his friend after Tony had 'bitten his finger and thought it funny.'

On 30 May 2014 he was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 15 years before parole.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, of the Homicide & Major Crime Command, said: "What started as a petty disagreement fueled by alcohol ended with Tony Campbell paying with his life.

"Our thoughts are with Tony's wonderful family who have been so supportive during this investigation. I would also like to acknowledge the first officers who attended and fought so hard to save Tony's life."

The family of Tony Campbell said in a statement: "Tony was always there when needed and knowing that he has been taken from us all in this way is so difficult for us all to understand. His four children are without a dad to see or talk to ever again."
