Cou­ple chop up mur­dered mate

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SICK cou­ple stabbed their pal to death and kept his body in the gar­den shed for TWO WEEKS – while they waited for ben­e­fit money to pay for a saw to chop up his re­mains.

Mar­garet Hee­ley and Mark Postles stabbed for­mer friend John Co­gan in the neck af­ter a night of drink­ing at their home in Le­ices­ter last March.

Af­ter a failed at­tempt to set fire to his body, the pair hid him in their out­house un­til they could af­ford a saw and knives to dis­mem­ber the corpse.

They then hacked off one of his arms and both his legs be­fore bury­ing him in their back gar­den.

But Hee­ley, 55, cracked and called po­lice – but tried to place the blame for the mur­der solely on her boyfriend, 47.

They were both con­victed of mur­der and jailed for 22 years fol­low­ing a twoweek trial at Not­ting­ham Crown Court.

WHAT’S the best thing about dat­ing fe­male tramp? It doesn’t mat­ter where you drop

her off!
