Irishman faces up to 20 years in jail after being found guilty of murdering Spaniard in stabbing frenzy

IRISHMAN Keith Burke was today found guilty of murdering ferry worker Abraham Baez in Tenerife.



Burke, 21, will be sentenced to between 15 and 20 years in prison after a jury unanimously convicted him of murdering the 24-year-old in a stabbing frenzy.



His girlfriend Sara Stuart was found guilty of wounding Mr Baez's girlfriend Laura Negrin.



But she was cleared of the more serious charge of wounding Laura with a rock and is expected to receive a suspended jail sentence.
