A car pulled up alongside Jarvin and a friend and some men jumped out and chased the pair before they were stabbed.

A post mortem examination revealed that Jarvin died of a stab wound to the chest.

Four men have been arrested but so far nobody has been charged.

Today, Kelsey said: "Javin had everything to live for. He was a father, partner, son, brother and friend. He had a passion for life and was a handsome, funny and caring family man.

"He was a fantastic dad who loved spending time with them and our son keeps asking when his daddy is coming home.

"Jarvin will now not be able to see them grow up or share key milestones in their lives. I'm completely devastated and I don't know how I'm going to live without him."

She urged witnesses to the attack or anyone with information on why Jarvin was killed or who was involved to come forward.
