Road rage killer who knifed driver in road crossing row is jailed.

A TWISTED road rage killer has been jailed for life after brutally murdering a dad in front of his four-year-old son.

Alexander Layton, 34, stabbed James Stokoe, 40, as he sat in his BMW after the pair rowed over crossing the road.

James bled to death within minutes as his young son was strapped into his car seat just inches away in May 2020.

Layton plunged the 12 inch knife into the dad-of-one six times before calmly walking away from the scene in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham.

The family man had been taking his son to visit his grandparents, and became embroiled in the roadside row after Layton crossed the road and caused James to brake sharply.

Layton has now been jailed for life, and must serve a minimum of 23 years, after being convicted of murder by a jury at Teesside Crown Court yesterday.
