Nothing coming out of Rotherham surprises me anymore.
Heck, nothing coming out of the UK surprises me anymore.
The dad of a murder victim spoke of his pain at losing his son — after three men were found guilty over his death.
John Methley (39) was assaulted by two men at the Midland Road roundabout, Masbrough, and died in hospital six days later.
Nafees Hussain (20) was found guilty of murder following a three-week trial at Sheffield Crown Court.
Kyle Greenwood (20) was found guilty of manslaughter and Adam Khan (21) of assisting an offender.
Mr Methley (below) received serious head injuries as a result of a sustained attack in February, which involved the use of a weapon.
Det Chief Insp James Axe said: “The assault on Mr Methley, which ultimately resulted in his death, was targeted and violent.
“Mr Methley was simply going about his business and was attacked by the pair, in a completely unprovoked and unjustifiable attack.
“My thoughts are with John’s family and friends, who have lost John through tragic circumstances but continued to demonstrate their bravery throughout this investigation and trial.
“I hope Mr Methley’s family can take some closure from today’s verdict.”
