Harrowing footage shows the horrific moment a man was stabbed to death through a car window by his own brother following a family feud.
Thomas Rogers, 26, was a passenger in a Vauxhall Astra when he was knifed in the heart through an open window by 32-year-old David in an attack that lasted just 30 seconds.
Emergency services rushed to the scene and found Thomas collapsed in the street in Birmingham but he was later pronounced dead at hospital from a stab wound to the chest.
His brothers David and his other brother Samuel, 30, were arrested and charged with murder and went on trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
Jurors were told the pair carried out the attack following a bitter family argument which resulted in Thomas going to live with his mum.
The night before and in the hours leading up to the attack, David sent Thomas messages threatening to kill him.
One said: “Bro come on I’ve come from Newcastle to get ya” while another said “Your a waste man, I’m gunna kill you right”.
The siblings later spotted Thomas travelling along Bristol Road in Birmingham and jumped out of their Ford KA armed with knives at 4.55pm on August 22 last year.
Samuel filmed his brother going over to the Astra and brutally stabbing Thomas through the passenger window.
Shocking CCTV footage captured the moment David lunged into the vehicle with the blade before they both made their escape back up north.
David fled to a hotel in Northumbria where officers found an apparent suicide note apologising for what he had done to his “baby brother”.
David, from South Shields, Tyneside, was found guilty of murder while Samuel, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter.
They both previously pleaded guilty to possession of a knife.
On Thursday David was sentenced to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 18 years while Samuel was caged for nine years.
Two other men, Ryan Hurt, 22, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, and Macauley Welby, 22, of no fixed abode, were both cleared of murder.
Detective Inspector Stuart Mobberley, from West Midlands Police, said: “It took just 30 seconds and one single knife wound to kill, Thomas.
“And now two people will spend years in prison for their part in this crime.
“When we say there are no winners in knife crime, this could not be truer in case.
“A mother has lost not just one, but three sons as a result of this heinous crime.”
