Two Sheffield drug dealers who were last month acquitted of murdering Chesterfield man Darren Broadbent are to face no further action by police.
It was revealed in court on Monday the pair - Jaiden Browne-Evans, 18, of Beaver Hill Road, Woodhouse, and a 15-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons - were using a Chesterfield flat as a base from which to deal drugs.
However, Derbyshire Police have now confirmed that they are not pursuing the drug case against them due to ‘insufficient evidence’.
COURT: Man died of a stab wound after trying to rob Sheffield drug dealers
Mr Broadbent, 35, was found dead on Monday, August 1 at a flat in Thorntree Court on Birchwood Crescent, Grangewood, having been stabbed through the heart.
Susan Shaw, 45, was said to have organised the raid in order to recoup a £50 debt from Mr Broadbent.
She was sentenced to six years for conspiracy to commit robbery in which Mr Broadbent died.
Nottingham Crown Court heard Mr Broadbent turned up at a flat the Grangewood flat with golf clubs, a mask, knuckle dusters and a crowbar.
Shaw - who was living at the flat at the time - had told him the Sheffield teenagers would have between £800-£1000 worth of drugs or money with them.
Mr Broadbent broke down two doors leading to the flat’s living room but in an ensuing struggle was fatally wounded.
