Man pleads guilty to manslaughter after teen stabbed to death during xbox gaming session

A man who allegedly encouraged the horrific stabbing murder of a young Toowoomba man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

The 21-year-old appeared in the Toowoomba Supreme Court this morning where he pleaded guilty to coaxing another man into stabbing 19-year-old Jake Lasker in November 2012.

The trio were reportedly involved in an xbox gaming session when the horror stabbing took place.


Although he did not kill Mr Lasker, he reportedly encouraged the stabbing through text messages.

Another man is already behind bars for the murder.
