Man jailed for at least 38 years for stabbing neighbour to death

A man who knifed a father-of-three 27 times on the victim’s front lawn after subjecting his neighbours to years of threatening and abusive behaviour has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 38 years. Can Arslan, 52, lay in wait for 43-year-old Matthew Boorman and attacked him as he returned home from work on the afternoon of October 5 last year. The murder was the culmination of 12 years of threats from Arslan to Mr Boorman and other neighbours in Walton Cardiff, near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, which began with a row over parking.
