A Manor Park man has been jailed for drug offences after being found not guilty of alleged involvement in a machete attack murder.
Daniel Adger was attacked inside a flat in South Ockendon, Essex, on the afternoon of August 21, 2017.
He managed to flee the flat and raise the alarm to passers-by while a man continued to attack him with a machete - causing injuries to his legs, body and head.
Despite the quick intervention and first aid from passers-by, Mr Adger died on his way to hospital.
Luis Jordan, of Church Road, was found not guilty of murder on Tuesday, March 2 after a trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
