Man Stabs Love Rival to Death, Flees to London Before Surrendering to Police

In a shocking turn of events, Daniel Balazs, 21, has been found guilty of the murder of 28-year-old Daniel Micska, a father of two, in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The brutal incident unfolded on August 9, 2023, when Balazs fatally stabbed Micska in the chest on Newton Street.

Jurors heard chilling details of the altercation, which erupted after Balazs whistled at a group of men and gestured for them to approach. The confrontation quickly escalated, culminating in the tragic death of Hungarian-born Micska. Prosecutor David Brooke revealed that Balazs had recently discovered that his former girlfriend, with whom he shared a child, was involved in a relationship with Micska.

Despite efforts to keep the relationship discreet due to anticipated repercussions, the news eventually reached Balazs, who remained outwardly calm. However, Balazs later claimed to police that he acted in self-defence, asserting that he was en route to visit his parents when the altercation occurred.

Following the fatal stabbing, Balazs fled to London in an apparent attempt to evade capture. However, he ultimately surrendered himself to authorities, facing the consequences of his actions.

Detective Inspector Matt Bolger expressed the gravity of the situation, condemning Balazs’s actions as a “horrific attack” that cost Micska his life. Bolger highlighted Balazs’s flight to London as an attempt to evade justice, compounding the anguish for Micska’s grieving loved ones.

The guilty verdict provides some measure of closure for Micska’s family and friends, although the pain of their loss remains palpable. As they grapple with the aftermath of this senseless tragedy, they can take solace in the knowledge that justice has been served.
