Noel Ramsey stabbed a man to death in an attack at the Centertainment complex in Sheffield

They had both been due to watch a film at the cinema when violence flared between Ramsey and one of Mr Hersi’s friends, who had been carrying a knife.

Ramsey, who was stabbed in his leg during that incident, picked up the knife used to stab him when it was dropped onto the ground as his attacker walked away.

He then used it against Mr Hersi as the 22-year-old, from Broomhall, walked towards him – plunging the blade into his chest.

Mr Hersi was taken to hospital by his friends, but died from his injuries a short time later.

Ramsey was arrested over the fatal stabbing when he turned up at hospital for treatment for his own injuries.

A second man, 22-year-old Layton Morris, of Ferrars Road, Tinsley, was also sentenced today after admitting assisting an offender.

He was jailed for six months.

Morris picked up and removed the knife used to kill Mr Hersi when Ramsey dropped it near to a bin after the attack.
