(Merseyside Police) We have today, Monday 15th October, welcomed the sentencing of a 32-year-old man for murder following a fatal stabbing in Prescot.

At around 9.30pm on Tuesday 10th October 2017, emergency services were called to Beaconsfield following reports that 54 year-old Tommy Grace (pictured) had suffered multiple stab wounds. He was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

Dale Murray, of no fixed abode, was today, found guilty of Mr Grace’s murder and was sentenced to life and will serve a minimum of 23 years.

Detective Chief Inspector John Griffith said: “This was a particularly nasty and unprovoked attack on an innocent and much loved family man who was minding his own business.

“The fact that Murray pleaded not guilty to murder meant that Tommy Grace’s family were forced to sit through an upsetting trial.

“I would like to thank the family of Tommy Grace for conducting themselves in a dignified manner throughout the whole process in what has been an extremely distressing and difficult time in their lives.

“No sentence can bring Mr Grace back but I hope that today’s verdict and sentencing means that his family can now move on with their lives and means that Dale Murray is behind bars where he belongs.”
