Jordan Brown has been found guilty of murder after stabbing his friend, Jordan Davies just days before Christmas on Holton Road in Barry.
Jordan Davies, 23 was murdered on the afternoon of Monday December 16th on Holton Road in Barry, near Iceland supermarket.
Previously Brown described the events that led to Mr Davies death and admitted using a knife to stab him but said: "I was in fear for my life, I genuinely thought he was going to kill me."
It was the prosecution case that Brown murdered Mr Davies "by repeatedly and intentionally stabbing him, causing him injuries to his chest, stomach and arm that then caused his death".
Emergency services were called to the scene just after 4pm and, despite an emergency operation being carried out in the street in a bid to save his life, Mr Davies died an hour later at the scene.
Jordan Brown, aged 25 will be sentenced on Friday, October 2nd.
A spokesperson for South Wales Police said: “Today concludes a South Wales Police Major Crime Investigation into the murder of Jordan Davies which took place in Holton Road Barry,
