A New York IT manager was jailed for life for joining in a vicious sword and axe attack, which left one Ealing man dead and four others with serious injuries.
Balagurubavan Balakhrishnabharthy, 26, became the third person jailed for the 2001 murder of Arvinthan Muthukumarasamy, who was savagely attacked by a gang of men armed with swords, axes and metal poles.
Mr Muthukumarasamy, from Ealing, was killed when an axe was driven twice into his head.
The five friends were on their way back from a cricket game in Alperton when they were attacked in Ealing Road, Wembley.
Balakhrishnabharthy fled the UK after the murder, travelling to the US via Switzerland using a stolen passport.
He settled in New York and got a job as an IT manager before police found him and extradited him back to Britain.
He was charged with murder and four counts of attempted murder in December last year when he arrived back in Britain, and jailed today for a minimum term of 15 years.
After Tuesday's sentencing, Mr Muthukumarasamy's brother Suganthan thanked the police team that brought the killers to justice.
