Father who killed man over child is jailed
A FATHER has been jailed for at least 26 years for killing a man who had asked if his crying daughter was all right.
Matthew Quesada (26) over-reacted when Alan Smith (63) approached the child and took the question as criticism of his parenting, the Old Bailey heard.
He went home, got a knife and stabbed Mr Smith five times in a "frenzied and silent" attack after tracing him to a local cafe.
Quesada, of Leyton, east London, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life.
Judge Peter Rook told him: "You are a very dangerous young man. This was a truly grave crime.
"Your reaction was wholly out of proportion."
