Police are still hunting one of the killers of a 37-year-old who jumped to his death to escape a savage beating.

Valodia Tarasov and Jurius Tarasov, 33, both failed to turn up for sentencing for manslaughter at the Old Bailey on Friday morning.

Police arrested 35-year-old Valodia several hours later.

Their brother Viktoras Tarasov, 39, of Aurelia Road, Croydon, attended court and has been remanded in custody to be sentenced on a date yet to be confirmed.

All three brothers had denied killing 37-year-old Pawel Pacholak.

Mr Pacholak leapt from a bathroom window, breaking his neck, as he fled the three brothers on January 12 last year.

He suffered multiple serious injuries, including to his head, face and torso, and broke 11 ribs, either in the fall at the flat in Streatham or during the attack.

Anyone with information as to the current whereabouts of Jurius is asked to contact police on 999.

I stopped being surprised at the ineptitude of our judiciary years ago! That said, it defies logic that this scum were found guilty of manslaughter and then allowed out prior to sentencing! I suppose deportation is out of the question.......
