A man who fled the country to avoid justice has been jailed for 16 years for manslaughter.
Abdulfatah Suleiman, 28, was sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court today, having been convicted of Anton Levin’s death last month.
Mr Levin, who lived in Dagenham, was found dead at a house in Southend in November 2014.
Suleiman, of no fixed address, was also convicted of robbery and unlawful wounding, and handed a five year extended licence in addition to his jail term.
He was arrested in Norway in June 2015, the same month that three other people – Danielle Russell, now 27 and of St Anns Road, Southend, plus two teenage boys – were found guilty of 24-year-old Mr Levin’s manslaughter.

“He has been jailed for 16 years but I would have preferred that he had been jailed for life.
