Father should be jailed for life court told
A man who murdered a father and chopped off his head has been jailed for life for his “brutal” attack on the dead child.
Matthew Smith, 22, of Northampton, pleaded guilty to murdering the 25-year-old man in March 2010.
The attack on his 54-year-old partner in the back garden at her home in Eastbourne, Northants, was witnessed by a friend, who called 999 and phoned police to report her missing.
Smith, who claimed he intended to kill his “father”, cut the man’s head with a knife, sliced up his body with a knife, dumped his corpse in the back garden, and then began stabbing friends with a meat cleaver before taking his own life.
In addition to the life term, he also had to serve three and a half years for murder.
In the sentencing, Recorder David Loughton told Smith: “You used your mental capacities to kill two of your family members and, as a result of that, you failed in yo개츠비 카지노ur duty of care. You had no reasonable prospect of rehabilitation and should be put on life terms for your actions.”
Recorder Loughton called Smith’s act “savage and senseless” and described his murder as a “totally random and brutal act”.
Smith was “courageous”, but, in the context of his life, “welcomes death”, he said.
The trial heard Smith was “an ex-soldier” and had been with the army since he was 17.
Smith had a previous conviction for domestic assault – a previous attack where he injured the pregnant woman and her husband – where h여수출장샵e cut the man’s throat.

He admitted he had tried to stab the man after the attack, as well as having the knife in his bag, but claimed he did it “to protect himself and defend his family”.
Smith is scheduled to be sentenced on April 6.
Detective Superintendent Paul Murray, from Det Ch Insp Loughton’s homicide and major murder team, said: “This man was a danger to himself, to his family and to everyone in the area. He was a sadistic sadist and this conviction sends a strong message to those who attempt to commit such an act.
“This attack targeted a loved one and when committed in this way it puts everyone’s safety at risk.
