Milton Keynes teenager sentenced after pleading guilty to manslaughter

    A Milton Keynes teenage boy was sentenced today (01/03) after pleading guilty to manslaughter last month at Oxford Crown Court.

    The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons due to his age, was sentenced to four years and four months imprisonment today (01/03) at Oxford Crown Court.

    It follows his conviction of one count of manslaughter on 4th February 2021 after he pleaded guilty at a hearing at Oxford Crown Court.

    His conviction relates to the death of 43-year-old Robin Williamson, of Awgar Stone Road, Oxford.

    Mr Williamson was assaulted and stabbed with a screwdriver in an incident on 27 October 2019 in Wood Farm, Oxford.

    He sadly died on 12 November 2019, with a post-mortem later revealing his death was as a result of the assault. 

    A 16-year-old boy from Banbury was acquitted of all charges against him.

    Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Bosley, said: “I am satisfied that the teenager in this case has admitted his involvement and has now been sentenced.

     “This case shows once again the consequences that assaulting someone with a weapon can have and the subsequent impact on family, friends and our communities.

    “Our thoughts remain with Mr Williamson’s friends and family and I hope that the sentencing will bring some closure to them.

    “I would like to thank Mr Williamson’s family for their support throughout the investigation.”
