Killer’s ‘re­gret’ over mur­der of his teacher

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -


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.
