A MAN has told a jury he watched his friend get stabbed in the chest as he was also being attacked with a knife.

As the trial into the killing of Darren ‘Dizzy’ MacCormick in Mendip Heights, Didcot, continued at Oxford Crown Court today Floyd Kennedy gave evidence.

He said he’d been catching up with his friend Darren along with two other men in the early hours of January 9 this year and during this there had been a phone call with 'arguing' to Mr MacCormick in the run up to the attack.

He added it was as he was getting into a car to leave that a 4x4 pulled up and men got out carrying knives and ‘aggressively stormed’ towards them.

Mr Kennedy said he was ‘hit in the head’ with a knife and saw two men near Mr Macmormick, who was stood on grass outside the house.

He said they ‘put a knife into Darren’s chest’ adding: “The last I remember he fell backwards on the ground like he had no control over his body.”

Talking about knocking for help as other friends called emergency services and performed CPR, he said: “I believed Darren was dead, I felt like I was dying. I just wanted someone to help us.”

Under cross-examination it was put to Mr Kennedy that ‘you haven’t got a clue what happened that night.’

He responded: “What I said is what I remember.”

Isaac Boyland, 20, of Marlborough Road, Oxford, Brookton Lagan, 19, of Robin Way, Didcot, and Taison Cyrille, also 19, of Market End Way, Bicester, all deny murdering Darren MacCormick.

They further deny wounding Mr Ryman and Mr Kennedy. Boyland and Cyrille also deny a charge of conspiracy to supply cocaine, which Lagan has admitted.

The trial continues.
