Life Jail Sentence for Macclesfield Man

Written by on 24 May 2021

Detectives are hoping the jailing of a man for life for murder in Cheshire brings closure for the victims family.

A court was told, Andrew Anderson, who controlled and physically abused his flat mate, stabbed 45-year-old Peter Kirkham in the chest at the property in Macclesfield in September last year.

The 35-year-old claimed Peter had inflicted the injuries on himself. However, the knife that was placed next to him at the scene wasn’t the weapon that killed him. Instead it had been discarded by Anderson earlier in the evening when he was seen throwing it over a nearby fence.

Anderson was convicted on Friday and was told he’ll serve a minimum of 18 years in prison.
