Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

A PIG farmer who tried to rip the heart from a woman af­ter stab­bing her in the chest with a pair of scis­sors has been jailed for 18 years.

Evil An­drzej Chra­nowski knifed house­mate Chris­tine Sey­mour, 59, and then pushed his hands into her open chest in an at­tempt to tear out her beat­ing heart.

The 34-year-old picked her up, took her into the rented house they shared and dumped her on the bed say­ing: “Just lie there and die.”


De­scrib­ing the hor­ri­fy­ing at­tack Miss Sey­mour, who was con­scious through­out the or­deal, said: “It was like a liv­ing nightmare.

“I felt a pain and some­thing warm. The next thing I was on the floor, my head laid up against the wall.

“I felt a huge pres­sure on my chest, like a knee drop, and felt some­thing rip­ping, like some­body’s fin­gers were go­ing across my chest.

“I got the im­pres­sion, as he worked with pigs, that he thought I was one.

“It just felt like he was try­ingto rip my heart out.”

Wor­ried neigh­bours called po­lice who found Chra­nowski in the room with the blood­soaked Ms Sey­mour.

He calmly asked for a cig­a­rette and con­fessed, “I’ve just killed a woman with this”, still hold­ing the scis­sors.

De­scrib­ing the scene to Not­ting­ham Crown Court Michael Cran­mer-brown, prose­cut­ing, said: “Ms Sey­mour was ly­ing on her bed in a pool of blood.

“You could see the blood pump­ing in­side her chest.”

Chra­nowski of Spald­ing, Lin­colnshire, de­nied at­tempted mur­der on Fe­bru­ary 2, 2011 but was found guilty by a jury af­ter a trial.

He was also con­victed of wound­ing an­other res­i­dent with in­tent to in­flict griev­ous bod­ily harm.

Judge John Milmo QC, pass­ing sen­tence, said: “This was a wholly un­pro­voked at­tack with a po­ten­tially lethal weapon.

“It is quite clear that your con­duct has had a last­ing ef­fect on Chris­tine Sey­mour.”
