STEVEN White from Splott has today been convicted of the murder of Jordan Cody-Foster in Hansen Street, Butetown, Cardiff, on Tuesday, November 23 2021.

White, 44, pleaded guilty during a trial at Cardiff Crown Court.

He will be sentenced on Friday, June 24.

Emergency services were called to Hansen Street shortly after 9am on November 23 to reports of a stabbing.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services and staff from the nearby Huggard Centre, Jordan Cody-Foster died from his injuries.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Matt Davies said:

“Jordan Cody-Foster was a much loved son, nephew, cousin, brother and father and our thoughts are with his friends and family.

“I hope the outcome at Cardiff Crown Court today provides some comfort to all who knew and loved Jordan.

“His death shocked the community, particularly those working and residing at the Huggard Centre.  I would like to thank them not only for their brave actions on the day and the efforts they made to save Jordan’s life, but also for their support during our investigation.

“This tragic case yet again highlights the devastating and far-reaching consequences of knife crime.

“South Wales Police is committed to tackling knife crime by preventing people carrying these weapons and robustly dealing with those we find involved in such criminality.

“If you have suspicions that someone may be carrying a knife, please contact police. Speaking out could, quite simply, save a life.”
