a man who ran over and stabbed his female friend 30 occasions after eating a “house cake” has been cleared of homicide.
Hashish consumer Jake Notman, attacked his spouse during a psychotic episode in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Notman, 27, admitted manslaughter after jurors heard that he inflicted more than 30 stab wounds on university student Lauren Bloomer, who used to be learning at their house in Bingley Road as a result of Covid-19 regulations.
Prosecutors had claimed Notman meant to kill but he was cleared of homicide on Wednesday after the Crown conventional his psychological state meant there was no realistic prospect of a conviction for the fee as a result of he didn’t fully grasp “what used to be real and what was once now not”.
The Auto factory worker, whose criminal crew argued that he had “totally misplaced touch with fact” after consuming a cannabis brownie, is expected to be sentenced later on Wednesday at Stafford Crown Court Docket.
