Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed after being convicted of manslaughter.

Mark Croxton, aged 42, of Snowberry Close, Stacey Bushes, Milton Keynes, was sentenced at Luton Crown Court today (10/5) to a custodial term of four and a half years. Croxton was also disqualified from driving for seven years.

He pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter at the same court on 10 April this year.

The charge is in connection with the death of 46-year-old Graham Cox, who died following an incident in Fen Street, Brooklands on 28 June 2018.

Croxton deliberately drove a car at Mr Cox, causing him serious injuries which required him to be taken to hospital.

He tragically died the next day in hospital as a result of the injuries.

Croxton was arrested the next day, 29 June, and then charged on 19 November last year.

Investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Shearwood, of the Major Crime Unit, said: “This was a terrible incident during which a car was deliberately driven at Mr Cox, causing him serious injuries which resulted in his death.

“I would like to pay tribute to the Mr Cox’s family, who have acted with the utmost dignity throughout the investigation. Mr Cox was a very well loved son, father and grandfather.”
