First pictures of brothers who fatally stabbed sibling after family row released

The first pictures have been released of two criminal brothers convicted of stabbing their younger sibling to death after a family row.

As reported by Birmingham Live, images of David and Samuel Rodgers were released by West Midlands Police.

The were found guilty after their brother died following an attack with a knife as he sat in his car in Birmingham.

David Rogers, 32, who hails from Nora Street, South Shields, was found guilty of murder.

Samuel Rogers, 30, of St Michael’s Street, in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter.

Two others, Ryan Hurt, 22, of Peel Crescent, Mansfield, also Nottinghamshire, and Macauley Welby, 22, of no fixed address, were found not guilty of murder.

Welby was also acquitted of possessing an offensive weapon.

Sentence was adjourned on the brothers until October 7.

Birmingham Crown Court was told that, after falling out with his family, Thomas Rogers had gone to live with his mother and had said several times he was going to knock David out.

Thomas Rogers was stabbed to death by his sibling David Rogers.

In July last year he moved to Birmingham and there was an incident when Samuel Rogers, who lived in Mansfield, had his windows smashed at his home.

Matters came to a head on August 22 when the brothers drove down to Birmingham, the court heard.

As they went along the Bristol Road they saw Thomas Rogers in an Astra being driven by Diane Close.

They pulled up and stopped in front of the Astra and David Rogers, Samuel Rogers and Welby got out of their vehicle.

David and Samuel Rogers were both armed with knives while Welby had a sledgehammer which he used to attack the Astra, the court was told.

Samuel Rogers filmed what went on as his brother went to the Astra and stabbed Thomas through the open passenger window.

The victim was put in an ambulance but on the way to hospital suffered a cardiac arrest and paramedics were unable to revive him.
