Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


A man has been found guilty of killing Andrew Jackson in Shirebrook.

Leon Smith was today found guilty of murder following an eight-week trial at Derby Crown Court.

The body of Mr Jackson, who was 55-years-old, was discovered on Sunday 26 January 2020 at an allotment, off Prospect Drive, where he lived in a caravan.

During the trial, the jury heard how Mr Jackson suffered almost 40 separate injuries and was ultimately killed by a stab wound to his leg.

Detectives say Smith (28), an amphetamine and cocaine user, was high on drugs at the time and had told a witness that evening that he “intended to kill someone.”

Smith, of Alder Way, Shirebrook, will be sentenced tomorrow.
