Drug addict prostitute who bludgeoned 71-year-old lover to death with a hammer and axe jailed for 12 years

Lancashire
A DRUG addict prostitute who bludgeoned her pensioner lover to death with a hammer and axe has been jailed for 12 years. Deanha Neely admitted killing Derek Taylor, 71, in the Blackburn industrial unit they called home but always denied murder.

A jury at Preston Crown Court cleared the 32-year-old of murder but found her guilty of manslaughter on the grounds of loss of control.

Neely, formerly of Hollingreave Road, Burnley, was a 'chronic heroin addict' and Mr Taylor would travel to Liverpool to buy and then sell drugs to fund her habit, the court heard. He would then give her a daily portion of crack cocaine and heroin to stop her from going back to working the streets.

But the court heard how the pair shared a violent relationship, which included Mr Taylor twice attempting to run the defendant over, before the fatal night on January 2 in the unit in Cross Fold.

Judge Mark Brown, The Honorary Recorder of Preston, criticised Neely for showing a lack of remorse. He said: "The precise circumstances are not clear but I sentence you on the basis that Mr Taylor threatened to kill you and went towards you with a hammer in his hand, and fearing violence you lost control. Having done so it is clear that you must have picked up an axe and then struck Mr Taylor repeatedly with that axe and also in due course the hammer.

Gloucestershire
A man has been found guilty of assaulting a sex worker in Gloucester. Georgian Huzdup, 29, was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court last Thursday after he kicked and punched the female victim. The woman was helped by two men who came to her aid during the attack in the early hours of 13 August last year.

Huzdup, of Barton Street, Gloucester, was issued with a two-year restraining order after serving five months in prison on remand. Following a trial, he was found guilty of assault but not guilty of a count of rape.

Gloucestershire police moved to reassure the public that it takes all allegations very seriously and reassure victims that their voices will be heard.

DC Simone Bowley, of the Rape and Serious Sexual Offences unit, wanted to thank the victim for her courage in coming forward and the witnesses who intercepted the assault. She said: "A prosecution was possible due to the courage of Huzdup's victim and also due to members of the public who had called police and gave witness statements.

"I would like to take this opportunity to emphasise Gloucestershire Constabulary's commitment to working closely with our partners in supporting women and vulnerable members of the community who are the victims of violence. We will strive to do everything we can to bring offenders to justice.
