A man has been jailed for life for killing a man in a dispute over money.

Jarrad Spence-Robinson, 26, had reportedly stabbed 23-year-old Seun McMillan in the chest on May 2, 2017.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said Spence-Robinson knew Suen and he believed Suen owed him money.

On the day of the attack, Spence-Robinson was told by telephone that Seun was in the Cowper Gardens area of Southgate. He rushed to the location, where he killed Suen.

A post-mortem report established the cause of Seun’s death to be a single stab wound to the heart.

Spence-Robinson was convicted of Seun’s murder following a trial at the Old Bailey in February this year. He was jailed for a minimum of 32 years on Friday (July 7).

Following his sentencing, Seun’s mother described the toll losing her son had taken.

She said: “The impact on Seun’s death has been horrific on me emotionally and physically. I have not allowed myself to be consumed by grief, to be beaten with bitterness and sorrow.

“Since Seun’s death I feel that I have not grieved. I have not allowed myself to do so, especially in front of my children as that would make them feel even more loss, than they are having to deal with.

“My heart currently works with one less valve. When I look at myself I see a different reflection, a person that I don't recognise.”

She said Spence-Robinson has never shown remorse for the murder of her eldest son. 

She added: “I will never have any grandchildren and yet it's hard to say life goes on”.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Howie, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, added that Seun’s family and friends have faced a “long and difficult” wait for justice.

He claimed: “We will never give up fighting for families like theirs who have lost their loved ones, no matter how much time has passed."
