HOLMES PARK MURDER UPDATE: Man jailed for life

A MAN who murdered his housemate has been jailed for life.

Tomas Krasnovas (22) was told he would serve a minimum of 17 years at Cambridge Crown Court today (July 1) after being found guilty by a jury on Tuesday (June 28).

Krasnovas attacked Erikas Ulinskas (36) as they walked through a green area of Wisbech known as Holmes Park on the evening of Saturday, November 27, last year.

It was the culmination of an argument that had broken out earlier in the day at the house they shared with other Lithuanian nationals in Cocketts Drive.

Krasnovas attacked Erikas, strangled him and knocked him to the ground before kicking, stamping and jumping on his head.
