Gilvy Anderson: Manchester man jailed for stabbing own brother to death after ‘tension’ in family home

His brother died from a single stab wound inflicted with a small kitchen knife.

A 59-year-old man who stabbed his brother to death at their home in Stretford has been jailed for 15 years.

Gilvy Anderson, of Davyhulme Road, Stretford, attacked 50-year-old Emile Anderson at the house they shared with their mother, after ‘tensions’ between the two brothers turned to violence.

Emile was taken to hospital following the incident on 16 April last year but did from a single stab wound to his chest.

Gilvy Anderson was found in the garden and arrested by officers, telling them he “attacked him because he attacked me”.

He later admitted in interview that he stabbed his brother in the kitchen using a small kitchen knife.


The court heard that Emile lived with his mother and two brothers, including Gilvy Anderson, at the address in Stretford but there had been ‘tension in the house’ between the two brothers for some time.

This week, he was jailed for 15 years for manslaughter at Preston Crown Court.

Detective Inspector Neil Higginson, from GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “This was a devastating and traumatic incident for the family and was a result of tensions between the two brothers.

“The trial has no doubt caused distress and upset to the family who have had to listen to the details during a trial.”
