Teenage Stabbing: Redruth Man Jailed


Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 12:08pm 9th December 2013.

A Redruth man who tried to murder a teenage boy has been jailed.

Truro Crown Court heard how Aaron Odgers smiled before he stabbed the 16 year old 15 times as he lay in bed.

The former charity shop worker from Southgate Street will serve 17 years in prison.

The 25 year old who had denied the charges, claiming he could not remember anything that happened after playing drinking games at a mate's house, will continue to be monitored after being released from prison.

A judge in Truro said it was "truly remarkable" he did not kill his teenage victim.

Speaking after the hearing, officer in the case, DC Jules Lewis said: "What struck me through the trial was there is two Aaron Odgers. There is an Aaron Odgers that Mr Quaife talked about in mitigation; hard-working, an outwardly calm and kindly person and then there is another Aaron Odgers that is capable of unprovoked horrific violence."
