Man gets 21 years for murder of Albert Wright

Posted on: Saturday, January 21, 2012

A delivery driver who stabbed an 80 year-old man to death to spite the victim's son has been jailed for at least 21 years.

Mark Robinson, 35, knifed Albert Wright in the neck and chest at the victim's home in Trelawney Road, Hainault, Essex, on February 25 last year.

He had initially planned to kill Mr Wright's son David - Robinson's stepfather - but changed his plans when his intended target was not home.

The Old Bailey heard David Wright had married Robinson's mother just three months before her death from liver disease and inherited the bulk of her estate.

Robinson later told police: 'I wanna stick it to him and if he has to live the rest of his life without his dad then so be it.'
