A woman drove her car into a man before her boyfriend jumped out and stabbed him and let him die on the street.
Victoria Quinton, 21, plowed a black Vauxhall Astra at Zelous Smythe in Crowthorne, Berkshire, on Bonfire Night last year.
After Mr. Smythe's collision had been thrown over the hood, Oliver Allerton climbed out of the vehicle and attacked him.
The couple had been fighting for months because Allerton owed Mr. Smythe £ 2,000, reports Bracknell News.
Smythe, 27, was stabbed in the heart in the handle. Allerton jumped back in the car and the couple drove away, leaving Mr. Smythe on the street.

Paramedics fought to save him, but he succumbed to his injuries shortly after the attack.
Allerton, who appeared on the Old Bailey, was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 17 years for the murder.
Quinton was sentenced to seven years in prison for his manslaughter.
Allerton was also convicted of intentional injury and possession of a magazine or pointed article for an incident one month before the murder.
A man in his twenties, who cannot be called, was attacked with a knife in Bracknell, Berkshire on October 6 around 1 p.m.
Mr. Smythe, pictured, has been described by his family as a & # 39; great person & # 39; who & # 39; could enter a room without saying a word & # 39 ;. Allerton was imprisoned for the murder for at least 17 years
Senior Criminal Investigator, Major Crime Unit Detective Sally Spencer, said: & Zelous Smythe lost his life that day after the vile actions of Oliver Allerton.
& # 39; Allerton and Quinton left him that afternoon at Nine Mile Ride, knowing that he was badly wounded, and they both essentially made the decision to let him die at the scene of the murder Allerton committed.
& # 39; Zelous suffered defensive wounds to his hand and forearm, along with the fatal stab wound to his chest.
& # 39; The incident was unraveled within minutes, enough time for decisions by Allerton and Quinton that eventually led to the murder of this 27 year old man.
& # 39; Allerton & # 39; s actions on that day took the life of another person, Quinton & # 39; s actions resulted in a manslaughter conviction, and neither considered the life of Zelous during this incident and has continued since abandoning a trial by his family.
& # 39; Neither has regretted the loss of life caused by them that day.
& # 39; Today Zelous will not return Smythe to his family and friends, but I hope that the conclusion with this condemnation will begin the healing process for them. & # 39;
Mr. Smythe's family told it BBC in a statement that he is a & # 39; great person & # 39; was that could walk into a room and light up without saying a word & # 39 ;.
