Vauxhall manslaughter: date set for sentencing

A 52-year-old man who’s pleading guilty to manslaughter with diminished responsibility is to be sentenced in September.

Michael Charles Brown admits killing 73-year-old John Stephen McCarthy in October last year but his lawyers say he was suffering from diminished responsibility, a claim accepted by the prosecution.

Emergency services found the body of Mr McCarthy near Vauxhall Gardens in St Helier on the evening of Friday 21 October 2016 and say he’d received numerous stab wounds.

Mr Brown will be sentenced on the morning of Monday 18 September.
