Two men and a woman have been found guilty of the murder of a homeless man. Lea Williams was an alcoholic and his home for the last year was an archway under the promenade in Hove, that looked onto the pitch and putt course.
The court heard that Lauren Bishop had confronted Mr Williams after he swore at another person while drinking with a number of homeless friends, including Michael Clark and Edward Phillips, near Portland Road, Hove, in February. She then threatened him that it wasn't over yet.
Clark and Phillips then committed the murder "at the behest or request" of Bishop. Williams was struck 20 to 30 times possibly with a metal railing he kept for protection.
