    Two jailed for death burglary

    Two brothers jailed for seven years for aggravated burglary | This is Nottingham

    TWO brothers who attacked a man in his flat have each been jailed for seven years for aggravated burglary
    Their friend died in the attack when the victim defended himself with a knife.

    Michael and Shawn Thorley and Dean Lloyd set upon Napoleon Sharman at his Sutton-in-Ashfield home on January 14.
    Mr Sharman defended himself with a military knife and fatally injured Mr Lloyd, 28, of Market Street, Huthwaite.
    Mr Sharman, who collected knives and military and police paraphernalia, was hit with baseball bats and other weapons in his hallway.

    Michael Thorley, 32, of Elderfield Drive, and Shawn Thorley, 23, of Mapplewells Crescent, both Sutton, had denied aggravated burglary but were convicted by a jury.
    Mr Sharman was arrested but not charged. He told the court he had been defending himself.

    Surprised they didn't charge Sharman... I thought they punished people in your country for self defense. Geez... you all are getting soft. LOL.

    They don't really, you can't believe all you read in the press There have been quite a few recently where no further action has been taken or courts find not guilty against home owners or tenants.
