Police release mugshot of accomplice to burglar stabbed by pensioner

He's a hunted man and police want his image to be passed on to help track him down.

The police have released an image of the alleged accomplice who broke into a home with the burglar who was stabbed to death by a pensioner last week.

It is believed that Billy Jeeves, 28, was with Henry Vincent when he broke into Richard Osborn-Brooks' home in Hither Green on Wednesday.

Vincent, 37, received a fatal stab wound during the break-in and was pronounced dead after being taken to hospital.

After speaking with the Crown Prosecution Service, officers said last week that they had informed Vincent's family that no charges will be brought against the pensioner.

Detective chief inspector Simon Harding said: "This is a tragic case for all of those involved.

"As expected with any incident where someone has lost their life, my officers carried out a thorough investigation into the circumstances of the death.

"We have approached the CPS for early investigative advice, as required under the guidance. We have received and considered that advice, and, at present - on the evidence available - we will not seek a charging decision.

"Therefore, no further action will be taken against the man."
