Jonas Hankin QC has successfully prosecuted Henry Jones, aged 22, for the murder of Mark Beresford, aged 55, following a trial lasting 3 weeks.  Mr Beresford died from traumatic brain injuries inflicted by the defendant, who claimed he had been acting in self-defence when he struck the victim with a metal bar.

Mr Jones was convicted of murder and sentenced to Life Imprisonment with a minimum term of 18 years.
