    Man Who Killed Armed Intruder Jailed Eight Years

    By Will Batchelor, PA News

    A man who stabbed to death an armed intruder at his home was jailed for eight years today.

    Carl Lindsay, 25, answered a knock at his door in Salford, Greater Manchester, to find four men armed with a gun.

    When the gang tried to rob him he grabbed a samurai sword and stabbed one of them, 37-year-old Stephen Swindells, four times.

    Mr Swindells, of Salford, was later found collapsed in an alley and died in hospital.

    Lindsay, of Walkden, was found guilty of manslaughter following a three-week trial at Manchester Crown Court.

    He was sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment.

    After the case, Detective Chief Inspector Sam Haworth said: “Four men, including the victim, had set out purposefully to rob Carl Lindsay and this intent ultimately led to Stephen Swindells’ death.

    “I believe the sentences passed today reflect the severity of the circumstances.â€

    Three other men were charged with robbery and firearms offences in connection with the incident, which took place in February last year.
