A father has been stabbed to death after a gang forced their way into his home to steal his television.
Keith Redpath, 46, was attacked in his bungalow before collapsing in the street outside.
He was taken to Sunderland Royal Infirmary after a passer-by called an ambulance. He died later from a single stab wound to his chest.
Two brothers have been charged with murder in connection with the incident.
Of course, if the father (who is the victim of this crime) had brandished a weapon of his own to scare the robbers away like Myleene Klaas did he would be the one in trouble with the police. Because in Britian you do not have the right to defend yourself.
And with this I bring in Monday morning's musical selection...
