Two remanded in Long Lartin prison murder case

Evesham Journal: Subhan Anwar Subhan Anwar

TWO men have been remanded to face trail for the murder of a prisoner.

Gary David Smith, aged 47, and Lee William Newell, aged 44, prisoners at Long Lartin, near Evesham, were arrested at the scene on Thursday and subsequently charged with the murder of Subhan Anwar. 

The pair appeared before Worcester Magistrates' Court this morning and were remanded into custody to appear before Worcester Crown Court on Tuesday.

The body of Mr Anwar, aged 25, was found by prison officers at just before 8pm.

A post mortem examination on Friday found that the cause of death was consistent with injuries from a broken neck.

Anwar was serving a minimum term of 23 years in prison for the torture and murder of a two-year-old girl in 2009.

 

He was jailed for the killing of his partner's daughter Sanam Navsarka, who suffered 107 injuries at his hands during weeks of torture.

His partner and the young girl's mother, Zahbeena Navsarka was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to nine years in prison.

They are not local heroes. They are murderers, regardless of what the person has done. Do you want prisoners to be judge, jury and executioner? That's civilised isn't it?
