Luke Myers jailed for nine years after stabbing two friends.
A Merseyside man who stabbed two friends in his own home, seriously injuring one, was jailed for nine years today (Friday)
A judge ruled that Luke Myers, 23, posed a significant risk of harm to the public.
Liverpool Crown Court heard that Myers, who has three previous convictions for wounding, was polite and rational when sober, and he thanked Judge Stephen Clarke when he sentenced him.
Geoffrey Lowe, prosecuting, said that Myers was in his flat in Princes Road, Toxteth, on March 26 drinking with friends when he began to goaded a dog belonging to Ashley Kinsella.
The two men started to fight and Kinsella got the better of him before letting him go. Myers walked into his kitchen and returned with a kitchen knife, stabbing Kinsella twice.
The court heard that a knife blow to his stomach resulted in some of his abdominal contents protruding through the wound. The victim fled to the window ledge and another guest, Michael Wardrope, tried to leave the premises but Myers turned the knife on him.
Mr Kinsella managed to attract passing police officers and Myers was arrested. The two injured men were then taken to hospital.
Kinsella had to
undergo emergency surgery and was detained in hospital for four day, whilst Wardrope only needed a stitch.
Myers pleaded guilty to wounding Kinsella with intent and wounding Mr Wardrope.
