A BARNSLEY man has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment after he fatally stabbed a man in Athersley in June.
Martin Wilson, 38, formerly of Monsal Crescent, was found guilty on Tuesday of stabbing Stephen Riley, 43, on the evening of June 26.
Wilson received a life sentence - to serve a minimum of 25 years - at his sentencing on Thursday at Sheffield Crown Court, and was also handed a 58-week concurrent sentence for breaching a restraining order.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.

Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
