The worker who killed the foreman at a site where they worked together was sentenced to life imprisonment. Elton Seva, 24, was convicted of the murder of 47-year-old John Woodward and sentenced to life in prison, with a minimum of 22 years, on Thursday. Woodward, a G3 Construction employee, and worker Sefa were employed at the Presman Building in Hatton Garden, East London. On April 17, 2018, Woodward was found dead on the fourth floor of the site with a head wound. Although it was initially thought that he had fallen from a height, an autopsy revealed that his injuries had been sustained in an attack. John Woodward | Source: Met Police Met Police has launched a criminal investigation and released a suspect who was caught leaving the site on CCTV, wearing a dark blue cardigan, blue jeans and brown work boots. Altun Sava was arrested on suspicion of involvement in the murder. However, he fled the UK to his native Albania via a flight to Amsterdam. In 2019, Seva was arrested by Albanian authorities in Durres and he was extradited to the UK for trial in January 2020. The jury at his trial was told that it may never be clear what his intentions were. However, the investigation revealed that Sefa had challenged his weekly salary and Woodward had taken his inquiry with the company. Salary is validated. A report from another colleague described the tension between the two – the day before the murder, Woodward was upset that Safa had removed their tools so early. Safaa’s lawyers demanded reduced liability due to his psychological state, but the court refused. He was found guilty last week. Judge Nigel Leakley had sentenced him on Thursday at the Old Bailey. The 883 days that Siva spent in pretrial detention will count toward life in prison. He will be 46 years old when he finishes his minimum term.
