Bulle had stabbed Paulius in the chest in a horrific attack which was witnessed by the victim’s partner and their friends.
Bulle was identified as the prime suspect by detectives and West Midlands Police launched a major manhunt.
He was traced to a house in Shrewsbury two days later and a man bag was found to contain the victim’s blood.
Bulle – who was also referred to as Switch – claimed someone else must have injured Paulius.
He claimed he had suffered an epileptic seizure and came across the aftermath of the murder.
He then changed his story and claimed he and Paulius had been ‘sparring with knives’ before he was killed.

But CCTV showed Bulle fleeing the murder scene with what appeared to be the knife hidden in his jogging bottoms.
Bulle managed to hide the weapon but police finally found it months later under a pile of rubbish between a fence and a wall.
Forensic experts discovered it was caked in Paulius’ sangue.
But following a trial at Stoke Crown Court on Thursday he was convicted of murder.
Bulle, of Clover Ley, Heath Town, will be sentenced in the new year.

Detective Sergeant Damian Forrest said: ‘This was the senseless killing of a young man.
‘Bulle seemed to have become annoyed about a phone call Paulius had taken and then lashed out with the hunting knife.
‘It left Paulius with serious chest injuries and he died within seconds.
‘Sadly the aftermath of this attack was witnessed by the partner of Paulius and his close friends, who all bravely gave evidence at the trial.
‘Despite what he’d done Bulle was captured calmly walking away and then fled the area.
‘He was quickly identified as the prime suspect and through intelligence which came in following our appeal to locate him he was arrested within two days of the attack.
‘He provided different accounts to what he claimed happened but through the diligence of our staff we reviewed a large haul of CCTV and collated strong evidence.
‘This helped create a clearer picture of what went on and our determination was rewarded when we were able to find the murder weapon.
‘Bulle has now rightly been convicted of murder and will face many years behind bars.’
