Sentence due after brutal stabbing
A killer who brutally murdered his step-grandmother with kitchen knives in a "sexually motivated" attack after accessing "hardcore" pornography on the internet will be sentenced today.
Jack Huxley, 20, murdered 62-year-old Janis Dundas at her home in Atherton Road, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, after she had taken him in "out of the goodness of her heart", Liverpool Crown Court heard.
The pensioner was found by police officers face down in a pool of her own blood in her bedroom with three knives "protruding" from her body. She had been stabbed and slashed 28 times.
The court heard Huxley launched "a brutal, sustained, and sexually-motivated" attack upon Mrs Dundas in the bedroom of her flat after accessing "hardcore pornography" which "indicated an interest in material showing sexual activity between young men and mature women", the court was told.
He used four knives and one carving fork or "skewer" to carry out the murder and also carried on inflicting injuries on his step-grandmother after she had died.
Huxley, from Ellesmere Port, pleaded guilty to murder yesterday.
He is due to be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court.
