Inmates found guilty of murder inside Long Lartin
3:08pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
TWO prison inmates have been found guilty of strangling a convicted child-killer at a maximum security jail.
Gary Smith, aged 48, and Lee Newell, 44, blamed each other for the death of Subhan Anwar, who was found dead in his cell at HMP Long Lartin in the village of South Littleton, near Evesham.
But both were convicted of murder today by a jury at Warwick Crown Court.
Anwar, from Huddersfield, was serving a life sentence for killing his partner's two-year-old daughter.
Smith and Newell tied him up and throttled him with a pair of tracksuit bottoms on Long Lartin's Delta Wing on February 14.
The 24-year-old was serving a sentence of at least 23 years at the Category A jail, having been convicted of murdering Sanam Navsarka at Bradford Crown Court in 2009.
