Parents of murdered 17-year-olds say ‘no sentence will be enough’ for closure


Parents of two “inseparable” teenagers murdered at a birthday party have said no prison sentence will be enough to bring them closure. Childhood friends Dom Ansah and Ben Gillham-Rice, both 17, were stabbed at a house in Milton Keynes on October 19 2019. On Wednesday, Ben Potter and Jamie Chandler, both 17, were sentenced to minimum terms of 22 years in detention for the murders. Jamie’s brother Charlie Chandler, 23, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 27 years, as was Earl Bevans, 23, while Clayton Barker, 20, was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 28 years, all for two counts of murder and two counts of wounding with intent.
