Mosa Abid, from Northolt, stabbed Moamen Settar at his home in Buddings Circle last October.

The 20-year-old pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility on April 24 at the Old Bailey.

He was sentenced under sections 37 and 41 of the Mental Health Act at the same court today.

Police were called to the address at around 1.35pm on October 15 where they found 18-year-old Moamen suffering multiple stab wounds.
