A jailed drug dealer connected to a brutal murder has been ordered to give up his mobile phone.

Veron Antonio, 24, from south east London, came to Norwich as part of a drugs conspiracy which led to the death of Steve Stannard.

Mr Stannard, 37, died in his Bowers Avenue flat in Mile Cross, on November 5 2016 from multiple stab wounds.

Antonio had been on trial with Hassiem Baqir, 20, who was convicted of Mr Stannard’s murder.

Antonio was found guilty of supplying Class A drugs last May following the four-week trial at Norwich Crown Court.

He was also convicted of failing to provide police with his mobile phone PIN and was jailed for a total of three and a half years at crown court last July.

Judge Anthony Bate made an order at crown court today that Antonio handed in his iPhone to the Norfolk Police chief constable.
