A guy named Sean Maurice was sentenced to prison after fatally murdering his 52-year-old father, Paul Maurice.
Sean, who received a 10-year prison term, admitted to sexually abusing his father after stabbing him more than 30 times in the back.
The victim’s neighbors in Bromley, southeast London, raised an alarm and the 31-year-old guy who admitted manslaughter was detained.
According to prosecutor William Emlyn Jones KC, after the incident, as car salesman Paul lay bleeding on their doorway, he pleaded the couple he didn’t want to die.
A police officer questioned him who was at fault while he was receiving medical care, and he responded, “Sean.”
At 11.56 p.m., despite their best attempts, paramedics declared him dead there. Sean was discovered a little time later, fleeing through some local back gardens, after a quick manhunt.
He ultimately found himself on the roof of a garden shed, where he was encircled by officers before being taken into custody. He revealed to police:
“I don’t have anything to lose. You people are attempting to get me arrested because I beat up my abusive, rapist father… and you intend to detain me? What sort of justice is that, anyway?
Sean was sentenced to prison for manslaughter by Judge Dennis Watson, KC.
You mentioned your father’s abuse of violence and physical contact with you during the trial.
On the basis of the information I have heard, I accept that your experiences were the worst. Your sister and brother complained of comparable torture at his hands.
“I also acknowledge the long-term harm this abuse has done to you.”
He stated that Sean had turned to utilizing drugs and alcohol to cope with his issues, and he added:
This must have played a role in your unpredictable behavior and declining mental health, I thought.
Sean briefly resided at his father’s house after being placed in a mental health act detention in July 2021. He subsequently spent three weeks in therapy, but he later relapsed.
The court explained how Sean had become unhappy on September 6 because his father had rejected his request to stay at his home.
He “relapsed again, took some beer and crack” on September 14 before quarrelling with the family at his temporary residence.
He then proceeded to his father’s house and attacked him there by stabbing him 33 times.
Although Sean insisted that he had stolen the knife from his father’s kitchen counter, the judge discovered that he had brought it to the scene.
Judge tacked on;
“You came armed with a knife. Your rage was evident when you left your house.
“Your sister spoke of her surprise and conflicted emotions toward her father. She emphasized that she is no longer able to report what he did to the police.
Along with you and your siblings, he had other children, and they have all lost a father.
