PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A jealous husband who stabbed his wife 300 times and a man who murdered and dismembered a woman after a night out were just two of the notorious criminals locked up in the UK this month. Other offenders jailed include a rapping jihadi dubbed 'the Masked Menace' and a drink-driver who killed a dad and his two children who were out on a Father's Day walk. A stalker who harrassed his television presenter ex-wife and a former geography teacher who sexually abused boys at a private school were also put behind bars in April. These are some of the shocking court cases that were widely reported in the UK last month. Sahayb Abu Sahayb Abu, the rapping jihadi dubbed 'the Masked Menace' (Image: Met Police) A rapping jihadi dubbed 'the Masked Menace' plotted a lone wolf knife attack during the coronavirus lockdown. Sahayb Abu, 27, bought an 18-inch sword, a knife, balaclavas and body armour online as he prepared to strike last summer, a court heard. He was arrested in July after discussing guns with an undercover police officer, who he met on a Telegram chat group for supporters of the so-called Islamic State (IS) group. Abu, of Dagenham, south London, denied plotting an attack, claiming he had other plans which included becoming a successful rapper like Stormzy, who had worn a stab vest on stage at Glastonbury. Following a trial, an Old Bailey jury found Abu guilty of preparing to engage in terrorist acts and he has now been jailed for 19 years. His brother Muhamed Abu, 32, was cleared of failing to tell authorities about the plot. Several of Abu’s relatives had been linked to extremism in the past, including a brother, sister and brother in-law who were jailed for collecting and disseminating terrorist documents. The judge said he was satisfied that Abu had everything he needed for a “lone wolf” attack and would have carried it if police had not intervened. Abu had no previous terror-related convictions but had two convictions for battery in 2016, as well as one for possessing a knife in 2017, and served two years behind bars for a commercial burglary, the court heard. Mark Masefield Mark Masefield (left) admitted killing his partner Marie Gladders (right) (Image: West Midlands Police) A violent killer, who fatally smashed a school friend over the head with a scaffolding pole in 1987, was jailed for the murder of his girlfriend during a drunken argument. Mark Masefield, 53, murdered dental receptionist Marie Gladders, 51, with a kitchen knife at his Birmingham home in November last year. Masefield informed police that he had killed his partner around two to three hours after attacking her during an argument, telling officers “gingers are always feisty”. He had previously been in prison serving a manslaughter sentence. In 2011, he admitted administering a fatal scaffolding pole attack on close friend Anthony Pryke before wrapping his body in bed sheets and pushing him head-first into a sewage drain. Masefield, who was 19 at the time, had kept the attack secret for almost 25 years, until confessing to a friend in 2010, and then police a year later. Prosecutor Robert Price told the court that Ms Gladders, from Chelmsley Wood, had complained to friends of Masefield’s previous violent drunken episodes towards her, including a blowtorch being held to her head. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for her murder with a minimum term of 20 years. The judge said Masefiled’s previous conviction of manslaughter was a “significant aggravating factor”. He was released on licence in 2017 after serving half of his prison sentence but the probation service said he was no longer on licence after February 2020, despite his sentence expiring in January 2023. Alan Edwards Alan Edwards was jailed for murder (Image: Police handout) A “violent and controlling” bully was jailed for life for murdering a missing mother-of-five. Alan Edwards, 48, claimed he last saw Susan Waring when she kissed him goodbye and walked out of his flat in Darwen, near Bolton, in January 2019. Ms Waring’s mother reported her missing but, despite extensive police inquiries, her whereabouts are unknown and there is no evidence to say she is alive, a court heard. Following a trial, Edwards, 45, was convicted of her murder and sentenced to life with a minimum term of 27 years.

Forensic examinations found more than 100 blood spots and traces of Ms Waring’s DNA on a rubber Halloween skull mask worn by the defendant, who struck her at close proximity. Edwards was also convicted of offences against four other women, including causing grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and making threats to kill. Elijah Morgan and Jedaiah Param Jedaiah Param (left) and Elijah Morgan (right) were both handed life sentences (Image: Met Police) Two killers were jailed for hacking a rapper to death in a “merciless” knife attack. Crosslon Davis, 20, known as Bis, suffered at least nine wounds to his head, back and chest when he was set upon by four youths armed with knives or machetes. Most of the attack in Deptford, south-east London, in December 2019 was caught on shocking CCTV footage. A court heard that Mr Davis had been a “highly regarded” drill artist and member of the Harlem Spartan collective based in south London and had been shooting a video for his latest track the day before he was attacked. Elijah Morgan, 20, and Jedaiah Param, 21, were found guilty of murder and having a blade following a trial. The defendants were on licence at the time of the killing, having both been convicted of knife-related offences. Crosslon Davis, 20, suffered at least nine wounds to his head (Image: Met Police) The pair were each jailed for life with a minimum term of 28 years. Vivienne Davis, the victim's mother, paid a tearful tribute to her son, who had been rapping since he was aged two and was about to start university. “He was intelligent and had the whole world in front of him, such a bright future cruelly cut short," she said. David Logan David Logan has been jailed for more than 10 years (Image: Cumbria Police) A drink-driver killed a man and his two children while they were out walking on Father’s Day. David Logan, 47, ploughed his vehicle into Joshua Flynn, 37, his son Coby-Jay, 15, and daughter Skylar, 12, in Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria, on June 21 last year. All three, along with their beloved pet Yorkshire Terrier Troy, died at the scene on Abbey Road. The court heard how Logan, of Dalton, was slurring his speech and staggering on his feet after being pulled from the wreckage of the Peugeot 206, which had ended up embedded in a tree. He admitted three counts of causing death by dangerous driving, one count of criminal damage, and one count of driving with excess alcohol. Joshua James Flynn aged 37, his son Coby-Jay Flynn aged 15 and daughter Skylar Flynn aged 12 (Image: Cumbria Police) Logan, who also has five previous convictions for drink-related driving offences, was jailed for 10 years and 10 months and banned from driving for 16 years. He claimed he suffered coughing fits causing him to black out, but the judge said this in itself meant he should never have got behind the wheel. Construction worker Mr Flynn and his children were enjoying a walk in Dalton when the fatal incident occurred at around 2.30pm.

Another motorist saw three people, “go into the air” before the Peugeot crashed into a tree, the court heard. John Foxley John Foxley, a former geography teacher, who was jailed for 16 years (Image: Norfolk Police) A former geography teacher sexually abused boys at a private school over more than a decade. John Foxley, 68, who was also a house master at the school in Bracondale, Norwich, used his position of trust to abuse five pupils in the early 1980s through to 1990. He admitted seven counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 16 years, four counts of gross indecency with a boy under the age of 14 years and six counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 14 years, Norfolk Police said. The force said that the defendant, of Riversdale, Frodsham, Cheshire, was sentenced to 16 years in prison. One survivor told the court that the “dark memories of abuse and being singled out ended in an escape into drink or drugs”, with the lowest point finding him in a house for vulnerable young adults. He added that the “effects of the sexual abuse, physical and mental abuse remain to this day as disturbing as they were 20 years ago”. Foxley must serve a minimum of 14 years in prison with two served on licence. Geoffrey Broome Former youth football coach Geoffrey Broome (Image: Humberside Police) A former youth football coach who caned, spanked and massaged teenage players was jailed for four years. Geoffrey Broome was found guilty of indecently assaulting three boys under the age of 16 in the 1990s. The 62-year-old worked with both Grimsby Town and Scunthorpe United, as well as local sides in the north and north-east of Lincolnshire. One of the complainants told police that Broome came to his home and told him to strip naked before massaging him with oils, and hit him with a cane across his buttocks on another occasion, the court heard. Another described how Broome would take him down a secluded lane and spank him, usually with his hand, but on one occasion with his own training shoes. The court heard how Broome was given a police caution for spanking an 11-year-old boy in 1987, leading the judge to question why he was allowed to work with children. Sentencing Broome, Judge Graham Reeds QC said: “Serious questions ought to be asked about how, with that (caution) on your record, you could have been allowed to continue to coach youth football. “The answer may lie in the comparative laxity of the child protection rules then, to how well they appear to be enforced today.” Aston Hannis, Charlie Statham, Paul White and Corin Barlow (L-R) Aston Hannis, Charlie Statham, Paul White and Corin Barlow have all been jailed (Image: Hampshire Police) Four men were jailed over the killing of a drug supplier who was shot dead in a rural lay-by. The body of Cheshire man Gurinderjit Rai was found in a Ford Fiesta in a countryside lane in Corhampton, Hampshire, by two horse riders on July 13, 2019. Dealer Aston Hannis, 30, of Eastleigh, was found guilty of the murder of the 41-year-old and sentenced to life in jail with a minimum term of 35 years. Co-defendant, Charlie Statham, 30, of Winchester, was also convicted of murder and jailed for life to serve a minimum of 28 years. Paul White, 27, of Winchester, was jailed for 15 years for manslaughter, while Corin Barlow, 41, from Horley, Surrey, was sentenced to 17 years also for manslaughter. The trial heard that the fatal shot which killed Mr Rai, known as G, was fired from a Mercedes A-class saloon car containing Hannis and Statham. The pair are believed to have then dumped the car in a field where it was set alight and they were picked up by White. The murder weapon, a sawn-off Beretta 12-bore shotgun, was supplied by Barlow, the prosecutor said. Hannis was a drug dealer who supplied cocaine and cannabis to the Winchester area, with evidence suggesting he sold drugs worth £240,000 in a six-week period, the court heard. He said that Mr Rai had been Hannis’ supplier, but “tensions” had emerged after a safe house where Hannis kept his drugs was raided. He added that Hannis also had a large outstanding debt to Mr Rai. Tom Wade-Allison Tom Wade-Allison, 25, raped five young women after spiking their drinks (Image: Avon and Somerset Police) A man was jailed for 24 years for raping five young women after spiking their drinks. Tom Wade-Allison, 25, of Martock, attacked the women in Somerset and Devon between March 2016 and November 2017. He was convicted of nine counts of rape, three of assault by penetration, one of attempted rape and one of sexual assault following a trial at Exeter Crown Court. An investigation into Wade-Allison was launched after a woman reported to police that he had raped her when she was unable to consent. The court heard how Wade-Allison “took advantage” of the five women and administered an unknown substance to at least two of them. The judge said victim personal statements from the five women described how they had suffered panic attacks, loss of confidence, “tearful and fearful episodes”, and did not feel safe following the rapes. He told Wade-Allison he had displayed “no thoughts or feelings” towards the women, had “no hesitation” administering a substance to them and had “no concept” of the pain he inflicted upon them. Wade-Allison was jailed for 24 years and must serve a minimum of 16 years in prison, as well as registering as a sex offender for life. Javell Hall and Kofi Abusah Kofi Abusah (left) and Javell Hall (right) (Image: Met Police) Two men were locked up for the murder of a new father in London. Drill rapper Javell Hall, 18, and Kofi Abusah, 20, were found guilty of killing 24-year-old rail worker Asante Campbell following a trial at the Old Bailey. They were handed life sentences each with a minimum term of 19 years.

Hall, who had evaded arrest until June last year by travelling to Leeds and Manchester, claimed DNA matching his profile found on the sheaf of a large knife used in the stabbing must have belonged to his twin. But a jury rejected his claim and found Hall, from Hayes, and Abusah, of Edgware, guilty of murder. Simone Perry Renzo Lake drowned when Simone Perry (left) left him unattended in the bath (Image: Northamptonshire Police) A mother was jailed for gross negligence manslaughter after her unattended baby son drowned in the bath. Simone Perry sent a WhatsApp message to a friend and made a phone call after leaving five-month-old Renzo Lake, who slipped off a baby bath seat into 13cm of water and drowned. The 27-year-old was found guilty in March after jurors heard claims she had left the bathroom at her Northamptonshire home for several minutes on January 27, 2019, assuming her son would be safe. The court heard how Perry immediately called the emergency services and tried to resuscitate Renzo when she found him. She told paramedics that she had left her baby for about four minutes and that it was her fault he drowned, the court heard. Perry initially denied using her phone while her son was in the bath in a police interview, the court heard, a lie the judge said was a deliberate attempt to mislead the investigation. “Babies and young children are at serious risk of death or grave injury if left unsupervised in a bath, and even more so if their carer is avoidably distracted," the judge said. Speaking after Perry’s conviction, the police officer who investigated the case stressed that experts recommend no child under-five should be left alone in a bath.

Zak Bolland, David Worrall and Courtney Brierley Courtney Brierley, Zak Bolland and David Worrall Two remorseless killers will serve more time in prison after being found guilty of murder for a second time. Zak Bolland, 26, and David Worrall, 29, have had around three years added to their life sentences after being convicted of Michelle Pearson's murder in a petrol bomb attack at her Salford home. Four of Michelle's children also died in the blaze at their Walkden house - 15-year-old Demi; eight-year-old Brandon; seven-year-old Lacie; and Lia, three. Bolland and Worrall were found guilty of the murders of the children at a trial in 2018, received life sentences and were ordered to serve a minimum of 40 and 37 years respectively. They were then found guilty of Michelle's murder at a second trial and their barristers argued they should not have their minimum terms increased. But the judge, Mrs Justice McGowan, said the previous sentences did not reflect the mental and physical suffering Michelle endured in hospital, where she remained from the fire in December 2017 until her death about 20 months later. She again handed them life sentences, to serve a minimum of 40 and 37 years respectively. The judge said both sentences would start from the day of the sentencing (Wednesday), meaning the period from when they were previously sentenced, in May 2018, until now, would not count towards their minimum terms.

She then admitted the same offence before the second trial. Brierley was originally sentenced to 21 years, of which she would have to serve half. She has now been sentenced to 12 years. Under new laws passed since the first sentencing, she now has to serve two-thirds of that sentence. It is thought that she will have to serve about eight months additional time in custody. Azam Mangori Azam Mangori was handed a life sentence (Image: PA) A man was jailed for murdering and dismembering a woman who went missing on a night out. Azam Mangori, 24, killed Lorraine Cox, 32, in his room above an Exeter kebab shop in September last year. A judge said Mangori had suffocated Miss Cox with a T-shirt she had been wearing, which was later found in her mouth. The Iraqi national cut her body into seven pieces over the course of a week and disposed of her clothing and possessions in bins and woodland. Lorraine Cox was murdered and dismembered (Image: PA) Her lower left leg and kneecaps have never been recovered, the court heard. Mangori placed her torso and head in a large plastic holdall and took it by taxi to Tinpit Hill on the outskirts of the city where he buried it beneath bracken and branches. After the murder, Mangori, a failed asylum seeker from Iraq liable to deportation, used her SIM card in his mobile phone to pretend that she was alive and well to family and friends.

He had previously admitted a separate charge of preventing Miss Cox’s lawful burial. Liban Malhamoub Liban Malhamoub (Image: Met Police) A man was jailed for more than 30 years for a “horrific” knife attack on a woman and three children. Liban Malhamoub inflicted more than 50 wounds during the sustained and savage assaults at an address in Palmers Green in north London in July 2019. The defendant, who was on bail at the time, had planned the assault, taking a knife to the scene in a Morrisons shopping bag, the Old Bailey heard. He then picked up more blades from the kitchen to continue stabbing the victims, who cannot be identified for legal reasons. The 45-year-old had targeted his victims’ necks, and some injuries penetrated deep into vital organs, the court heard. The force used was demonstrated by the fact that Malhamoub bent more than one knife out of shape. He was described by a witness as “looking angry with bloodshot eyes and bulging veins”. Two of his victims “played dead” in an attempt to stop the onslaught but were attacked again when Malhamoub realised they were alive. Malhamoub was handed a life sentence with a minimum term of 32 years. He was also convicted over a separate attack on a man outside a pub in Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire in 2017. Malhamoub was given a further seven years’ jail for wounding with intent in relation to the earlier pub attack which will be served concurrently. George Leather George Leather has been jailed for 18 years for the murder of his wife (Image: Merseyside Police) A jealous husband killed his wife by stabbing her 300 times in what a judge described as "an episode of unspeakable and barbaric savagery". George Leather, 60, used four different knives to inflict around 100 wounds to the face and head of the woman he had been married to for 34 years. Paula Leather, 56, was unrecognisable when she was found dead at their home in Prescot, Merseyside, in November last year, Liverpool Crown Court heard. Paula, a much-loved nan who worked at Asda, was left for dead at the foot of the stairs, while her husband went upstairs for a shower. Paula Leather was found with up to 100 injuries to her face and neck and between 200 and 300 injuries on her body (Image: Merseyside Police) Her sister-in-law alerted the emergency services but police and paramedics could do nothing to save her. Leather denied his wife's murder and was set to stand trial before changing his plea to guilty. He was jailed for life and will serve a minimum of 18 years in prison before he can apply for parole.

For more than 20 years, Leather had accused his wife of affairs and witnesses told the court how he was "extremely jealous and possessive". The court heard how he denied his wife contact with friends and family, and damaged and destroyed property when he lost his temper with her. Jonathan Wignall Jonathan Wignall, the ex-husband of ITV presenter Ruth Dodsworth (Image: South Wales Police) The ex-husband of an ITV weather presenter was jailed following a nine-year campaign of controlling behaviour, harassment and stalking against her during their marriage. Jonathan Wignall, 54, set alerts for Ruth Dodsworth’s television appearances, used her fingerprint to access her phone while she was asleep, and fitted a tracking device to her car. A court heard Wignall was an “unrepentant, possessive bully” with a “fragile ego” who repeatedly accused Ms Dodsworth, 45, of being unfaithful during their relationship. He refused to allow her to travel to filming locations without him, would turn up at ITV Wales’ Cardiff studio unannounced, and force her to spend her lunch hour with him in the car park. The couple married in 2002 and Wignall's controlling behaviour began in 2010 when the couple moved from Swansea to Cowbridge, the court heard. On one occasion in October 2016 family members witnessed Wignall pushing his wife over causing her to fracture a rib, and on another occasion saw him pushing her and grabbing her by the neck. Read More Related Articles ITV's Ruth Dodsworth praised by This Morning viewers as she speaks about abusive ex-husband When Ms Dodsworth eventually decided not to return home after a work shift on October 17 2019, Wignall called her 155 times and even threatened to commit suicide to get her to return. When Wignall was arrested the following morning on suspicion of harassment, he said to police: “Harassment? But she’s my wife.” Wignall pleaded guilty to one count of coercive and controlling behaviour and stalking before he was due to stand trial. He was sentenced to a total of three years in custody, of which he will serve half before being released on licence, and was also given a restraining order against contacting Ms Dodsworth. Stephen Day Fraudster Stephen Day who left a trail of "misery,hardship, and anxiety" while committing a £1.4m scam 'Career criminal' Stephen Day - a cheat in love and money - was jailed following a six-year investigation. The chartered accountant, financial consultant and former NHS executive siphoned almost £1.4m from companies, including those that care for vulnerable people. He also ripped off three NHS trusts and a woman he strung along with a pack of lies. Day raided a communal maintenance account for residents at a smart Manchester city centre apartment block. A court heard he told a string of fibs, including that he had cancer, that his parents had died and that he was a widower. He was in two live-in relationships with men who didn't know about each other. Some £1,382,244 was taken in total, which Day used to fund his luxury lifestyle.
