The defendant claimed that her boyfriend, a professional boxer, had been abusive towards her and hit her in the face during an argument, which led to the fatal stabbing.

Staffordshire Police said in a statement obtained by Newsflash that the victim died at the scene.

They said: “Police were called to Rosliston Road, just after midday on 25 July 2021 to reports that a man had been stabbed in the left side of his chest. Tragically, despite the best efforts of paramedics, Oliver died at the scene.”
