Wiltshire, 25, of Wargrave Road, Newton, and 25-year-old Hoather, of Tickle Avenue, Parr, admitted killed 17-year-old Jordon on New Year’s Day.

Wood , 32, Elephant Lane, Thatto Heath, denied the brutal stabbing but was found guilty after a trial.

Det Sgt Jackie Guinness said: “This was a brutal and unprovoked attack on a 17-year-old youth, who had gone to a party, where he expected to celebrate the New Year and sadly had his life cruelly taken.

“Jordan had his whole life ahead of him and the actions of these three men have taken his future away and have left a big hole in his family. Their actions can only be described as despicable and cowardly.

“There is no place in our communities for people who commit such violent and horrendous crime and their sentence reflects the severity of their offences.

“While it cannot undo what has been done, I hope their sentences will in time give the family some sense of closure.

“I’d like to thank the investigation team and the Crown Prosecution Service for their hard work in bringing this case to court.”
