A 19-year-old man has today (February 9) pleaded guilty to manslaughter following the death of Kyle Ghanie in Northampton last year.
The incident happened on Saturday, August 20, at about 4.30pm, on the corner of Abington Street in Northampton town centre, when 18-year-old Kyle was attacked by Braydon Phillips, previously of Irthlingborough.
Kyle was rushed to hospital however, despite the best efforts of the staff at University Hospital Coventry Hospital, sadly died of his injuries two days later.
An investigation was launched by Northamptonshire Police following Kyle’s death leading to the swift arrest and subsequent charge of Phillips.
Today at court, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and will be sentenced on March 24, 2023.
Senior Investigating Officer – Detective Inspector Simon Barnes, said: “This is a tragic case with no winners.
“Though we have had a guilty plea today, no action or words will ever be enough for Kyle’s family, his partner and his friends.
“Every day they still feel his loss with the same pain and grief as they did on that day in August last year.
“My thoughts remain with them and will continue to long after this case has concluded.”
