Man stabbed to death at party remembering man who was stabbed to death



A man has been stabbed to death at a party remembering the life of a man who was killed in a knife attack a day earlier.
The man, aged 38, was found with stab wounds to his chest in Sneinton in Nottingham in the early hours of this morning.
It came just a day after his friend Martin Maughan, 27, was found with a stab wound in Sneinton at just after 6am on Saturday.
He also layer died from his injuries.
It is understood the two victims were friends, and the second was having a party to celebrate the life of his pal when he was stabbed.
Chief Inspector Mark Stanley, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: ‘The murders are not believed to be linked and we’re treating them as separate incidents.
‘We have increased visible patrols in the local area to reassure the local community and to provide them with appropriate information as to what has happened.
‘The early indications are that these incidents are confined to people who are known to each other and who were at addresses they were invited to.

‘In connection with the murder in West Walk we have arrested a 19-year-man on suspicion of murder. A 43-year-old, arrested on suspicion of murder, is still in police custody. ‘No other people are sought in relation to this incident.’ Formal identification of the Mill View Close victim is yet to take place.
Call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 with information.
