Four Sentenced for Murder of Adam Vincent

20/01/2012

Adam was killed and his dismembered body was dumped in locations across Humberside. Today those responsible for his death have been sentenced after being found guilty at Sheffield Crown Court.

 -Luke Griffiths was sentenced to custody for life with a minimum tariff of 26 years for murder and 8 years to run concurrently for perverting the course of justice
 -Lee Griffiths was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum tariff of 32 years for murder and a total of 16 years imprisonment to run concurrently for perverting the course of justice and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
 -Thomas Griffiths was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum tariff of 27 years with a total of 13 years to run concurrently for perverting the course of justice and conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
 -Mark Jackson was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum tariff of 29 years for murder with 8 years to run concurrently for perverting the course of justice.
 -Matthew Frow was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment for GBH, and 5 years consecutively for perverting the course of justice and 3 years consecutively for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. (Total 15 years). He entered a guilty plea to the drugs offence and so qualified for a discount for his guilty plea.

Head of the CPSs Complex Casework Unit, Peter Mann said:

 Adam Vincent was murdered by a vicious, heartless gang which did not hesitate to repeatedly use violence against a defenceless man.

They confined him in the Griffiths family home over several weeks where he was beaten, shot with an air rifle and ultimately murdered. The indignities they inflicted upon Adam continued beyond his death. In a manner calculated to avoid detection they dismembered and concealed his body in the hope it would never be found. This callous act has only added to the distress of Adams family who are at the forefront of our thoughts today.

The Crown Prosecution Service has worked closely with Humberside Police to build the strongest possible case to secure justice for Adam. We hope that the sentences imposed today bring some small measure of comfort to his family and friends.
