Student who stabbed mother 30 times jailed
A student who stabbed his mother 30 times in a frenzied murder bid has been locked up for nine years.
Kyle Morrison attacked Sharon Morrison as she returned to their flat in Jordanhill last August. Morrison, 20, also choked the 51- year- old while telling her: “I love you so much.”
Morrison – a student at Edinburgh’s Heriot- Watt University – returned to the dock yesterday having earlier pleaded guilty to attempted murder.
Lord Mulholland t old Morrison his mother was “lucky to still be here”, and added: “Your motive seems to be some sick f antasy on your part. You are her only child – she brought you i nto the world, and gave you every opportunity. This was an appalling crime which will have long term consequences for your mum.”
Morrison did not look at his mother as he was led handcuffed to the cells.
