Kelsey Dixon, the partner of Jarvin Blake, has today released this statement as two men are to be jailed for his murder and another two for manslaughter.

“Jarvin was my world. Jarvin and I were engaged to be married. We have three young children who have been left without a father.

“Jarvin was only 22-years-of-age when he was stabbed to death. He was chased and stabbed in the heart. He was defenceless. He didn’t stand a chance.

“My life changed forever when he died. I miss him every minute of every day. He was loved by his family and friends. Jarvin cared for the people he loved. He idolised his three children.

“It has taken 13-months for this case to be brought to trial. They have been the most traumatic months of my life. Lewis Barker pleaded guilty to the murder of Jarvin, however three men who were there or there abouts when Jarvin was murdered have forced me to attend court every day and to sit and listen to the harrowing details of how he died. I have attended court every day for four weeks.

“Lewis Barker has pleaded guilty to murdering Jarvin. I am pleased that Cain Gray has been found guilty of murdering Jarvin and Josiah Foster and Devon Walker guilty of manslaughter, and that justice has finally been served.

“I hope the Judge gives them a large custodial sentence. A large custodial sentence will not bring Jarvin back but it will help me to move on with my life knowing that these murdering cowards are in prison.

“I would like to thank South Yorkshire Police for the work that they have done in bringing this case to court and for the support that they have provided to me and my family. I would also like to thank the prosecution team for the work they have done during the last four weeks.”
