Four men who killed a 19-year-old at a petrol station in Coventry will finally learn their fate today (Wednesday).

Pavandeep Daudher was attacked and stabbed at the BP petrol station in Lockhurst Lane, Foleshill, on March 31, 2020, and died in the early hours of the following morning.

At a trial last year, Ethan Lilley, Jason Cornwall, Riley Kavanagh and Kane McCarron were cleared of murder, but were all convicted of manslaughter.

The sentencing of the group began in November when Judge Sylvia de Bertodano heard a statement from Pavandeep’s heartbroken mother, who said: He was my whole life, my only son, and now I have a hole in my heart.”

However, the act of handing down sentences on them was adjourned until the new year and will take place today at Warwick Crown Court.

Lilley, Cornwall and McCarron also being sentenced for robbing Pavandeep’s friend Zak Challenor during a further incident moments after the killing.

Also in the dock today will be Lucas Hutchinson, 19, and another 19-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, who were found guilty of assisting offenders by disposing of a car used during the incidents by setting it on fire.

They had been involved in a separate trial, which had seen Callum Bowman, 31, found not guilty of murder and of an alternative charge of manslaughter.

He was also cleared of a further charge of robbery.
