Man convicted of jealousy-fuelled prom night murder

A man has been found guilty of murdering a teenager in an “unprovoked” attack on the night of the victim’s school prom.

Kajetan Migdal, 18, died after being stabbed on Cutty's Lane in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, on 27 May 2022, after he had been at the Saint John Henry Newman Catholic School event.

Patrick Sharp-Meade, now 20, mistakenly believed the teenager and three friends had spoken to his ex-girlfriend.

Sharp-Meade, of Cutty's Lane, admitted the killing but denied murder, claiming he suffered "neurodevelopmental disorders" that affected his behaviour. He was convicted of murder by a jury at Luton Crown Court.
