This is the moment a bloodied murderer told police ‘killing people isn’t always a bad thing’ after stabbing his neighbour to death because the man’s son had been revving his motorbike loudly.

Jamie Crosbie, 48, stabbed 41-year-old Dean Allsop 17 times after Mr Allsop’s son Mikey revved the engine of a motorbike they had been working on in April last year.

Police released dramatic bodycam footage of his arrest, which showed his reaction to being told that his victim was dead and he was facing a murder charge.

He said: ‘That makes me happy, that’s a good thing, that’s the best news I ever heard.’

The defendant was found guilty of murdering father-of-three Mr Allsop in Thorpe St Andrew, near Norwich, following a three-week trial, Norfolk Police said.

The force said Crosbie was also found guilty of the wounding with intent of two women, Mr Allsop’s partner Louise Newell and friend and neighbour Kerryn Johnson, who had come out to help.

The defendant was found guilty of murdering father-of-three Mr Allsop (above) in Thorpe St Andrew, near Norwich, following a three-week trial, Norfolk Police said

He was cleared of two counts of attempted murder.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Phill Gray, from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said: ‘This was a cold-blooded attack by a man intent on causing extreme harm to others.

‘Dean suffered 17 stab wounds to his body, some of which were inflicted when he was lying face-down and motionless.

‘Crosbie’s savage attack didn’t stop there; he stabbed two people who had come to help Dean, one suffering an arterial bleed to her neck.

‘Crosbie is an extremely violent man who has no place in society, and we welcome the jury’s verdict today.’

He said the incident had ‘striking similarities’ to a previous altercation in 2018 where Crosbie threatened Mr Allsop with a knife and hammer after Mr Allsop put some rubbish in his wheelie bin.

Crosbie was cleared of two counts of attempted murder. He is due to be sentenced at a later date

Mr Allsop, of Primrose Crescent in Thorpe St Andrew, Norfolk, was pronounced dead at the scene at 8.18pm on April 14 last year (pictured here with one of his three children)

Mr Allsop, of Primrose Crescent in Thorpe St Andrew, Norfolk, was pronounced dead at the scene at 8.18pm on April 14 last year, Norwich Crown Court heard.

In a statement released through police, Mr Allsop’s partner Louise Newell said: ‘I cannot put into words how this has affected our whole family.

‘My children have lost their hero and I have lost my chosen person – the person I chose to spend my life with. My best friend, soulmate, my first love.

‘Our lives will never be the same without Dean, but we will continue to keep his memory alive.’

Crosbie is due to be sentenced at a later date.

Andrew Jackson, prosecuting, previously said that Mr Allsop and his son Mikey were ‘keen motorcyclists’ and ‘occasionally they would tinker with their motorcycles at home’.

‘The sound of a motorcycle engine in a residential area can occasionally, like many other things, cause some annoyance to other residents and such minor issues between neighbours can be resolved amicably with some give and take on both sides,’ Mr Jackson said.

‘The prosecution case is that on that day the defendant allowed himself to become annoyed by the noise of the motorcycle engines and he was not prepared to deal in any amicable way at all with that issue.’
