2008: Trial OF The com­mon mur­derer

Chat - - True-life -

Rachel Nick­ell was walk­ing with her tod­dler son on Lon­don’s Wim­ble­don Com­mon in 1992 when she was mur­dered. It was years be­fore her at­tacker Robert Nap­per was brought to jus­tice. But on 24 Jan­uary 2008, Nap­per pleaded not guilty to Rachel’s mur­der, send­ing the case to trial.

He fi­nally pleaded guilty to man­slaugh­ter on the grounds of di­min­ished re­spon­si­bil­ity and is held in­def­i­nitely at Broad­moor Hos­pi­tal.
