1st January 2021, It was a usual New Years eve party until a disagreement broke out.
Just before 3am police officers were called to reports of an altercation in Walshs Manor, Stantonbury, Milton Keynes.
The motive of the attack was an alleged ongoing dispute between two groups of men, and Aylett had attended the address in Walshs Manor armed with two knives that he had picked up from a kitchen drawer. He stabbed Jay a number of times before proceeding to attack the second victim.
It is believed that Jay Fathers had intervened in an argument, after Aylett had became aggressive towards other occupants of the address, and that he was not the intended target of Aylett’s actions.
When police arrived 18-year-old Jay Fathers  was found at the property with serious stab wounds and was being treated by his friends and paramedics from South Central Ambulance Service. Jay later died at Milton Keynes University Hospital of his injuries.
A second victim, Mr Grant,  aged-49 at the time, was also stabbed, suffering serious injuries, which required hospital treatment.
