Killer’s ‘regret’ over murder of his teacher
Corpus Christi Catholic School in Leeds.
Mr Cornick said he tried to visit his son in prison once a month.
He said: “I find that he is scared and feels isolated in prison. He has told me that he very much regrets what he did and is desperate to find a route to get better.”
Mr Cornick said he has repeatedly gone over the events of April 28, 2014, when his son was 15, and said: “I cannot point to anything that could have forewarned anybody of what was to happen.”
Cornick’s mother, Michelle Leadbeatter, who is divorced from Mr Cornick, said she had also discussed “his understanding of what he did, of its importance and remorse for his actions”.
Cornick ordered to serve a minimum of 20 years in custody for Mrs Maguire’s murder.
