Two jailed for killing Wembley man in nightclub row
Victim was beaten to death outside a cab station
Two nightclub revellers who beat a man to death after they rowed over a woman have been sent to jail.
Erik Patricio Rosero Yepez, 22, from Wembley, died after he was punched, kicked and had his head stamped by Galo Vargas Bemudez and Angel Campoverde, who are both 23.
The Old Bailey heard the pair were part of a group of men who had a scuffle over a woman with Mr Yepez and his friends in a nightclub in London Bridge on December 4 last year.
The victim left the club and was standing outside a cab station when Campoverde jumped out of car, which was driven by Bemudez and had other passengers, and attacked him in the early hours of December 5.
