Jailed for murder of Learoy Venner
Mr Venner was found with serious head injuries at a house on Belmont Drive, Anfield, at around 15:00 BST and died in hospital.
A post mortem examination found that he had suffered “multiple blunt force blows”, resulting in brain injury. Spaine, who admitted to the murder but denied the murder, was found guilty after a trial.
Det Ch Insp Judith Blease, from Merseyside Police, said: “Spaine compounded the suffering of Learoy’s family by denying the murder and altering his story to try to avoid responsibility.
“Spaine will now serve a significant prison term, due to an extensive investigation that overcame all the obstacles that Spaine tried to place in the path of our detectives.”
A statement read in court on behalf of Mr. Venner’s brothers said their lives had been ruined. “Learning of the tragic passing of our beloved brother Learoy has been difficult for us as a family to comprehend,” his family said.
“Learoy had such a beautiful personality and such a loving, gentle soul. “We loved Learoy so much that we will always hold him near and dear to our hearts, minds and souls for the rest of our lives.”
