  • Tracy Mansell, 56, of Coleman Road, West Howe and James Kinsley, 40, of Hinton Road, Bournemouth, have been found guilty of the murder of Angelo Rodrigues
  • The 44-year-old died of multiple stab wounds following an incident at his flat in Coleman Road, West Howe on July 27, 2012.


Following the conviction, Detective Inspector Marcus Hester, of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “This case involved a sudden attack on a man in his own home by his neighbours over a complaint about noise.

“The jury has listened to all the evidence and has reached the correct verdict. Tomorrow Tracy Mansell and James Kinsley will face the consequences of their actions. 

“It is very sad that a neighbourly dispute should result in such tragic circumstances. My sympathy goes out to Angelo’s family and friends.”


Judge The Honourable Mr Justice Males tells court he will sentence Kinsley and Mansell in the morning. 


Kinsley's defence barrister has asked the judge to ignore his minor previous convictions as they don't involve any violent offences. 

Said Kinsley didn't have any use of the scissor blade. His involvement was with the use of his fists. 


Tracy Mansell's defence barrister Mark Heyward QC is now addressing the court. 

Says there was a lack of premeditation, Mansell was suffering from a mental disorder which lowered the degree of culpability. 

Mansell also suffered from prolonged stress from noise coming from neighbour Mr Rodrigues. 


Prosecutor Graham Reeds QC says an aggravating feature in the case was that Mr Rodrigues was murdered in his own home. 


Prosecution say Tracy Mansell has a number of previous convictions for drugs offences. 

James Kinsley has previous convictions  for minor offences. 


Both defendants showed no emotion as they were convicted of killing the 44-year-old in his flat in Coleman Road, West Howe, on July 27 last year.


Tracy Mansell and James Kinsley have been found guilty of the murder of Angelo Rodrigues.
