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.
