A man who admitted killing an elderly woman during a burglary at her home in York on New Year's Day has been jailed for 12 years.
Peter Harris, 33, was sentenced to eight years and nine months for the manslaughter of Elsie Mowbray, 87, and a further three years and three months for committing another robbery less than one hour later. The sentences will run concurrently.
Harris knocked on Elsie Mowbray’s door in Victoria Court in York, at around 11am on January 1.
When Elsie answered, Harris claimed to be looking for his rabbit and pushed his way into the house before making his way upstairs looking for something to steal.
At this point Harris was disturbed by Elsie’s son and struggled with him before forcing his way past Elsie, who fell to the ground and hit her head on the wall.
Elsie was taken to York Hospital and died from her injuries on January 8.
Shortly after the incident,Harris made his way to a flat in Turpin Court, in the Fishergate area of York.
At around lunchtime, he knocked on the door and asked one of the flat’s occupants if he could come in as he needed some money because the police were looking for him.
When the man refused, Harris barged his way in and stole money from a wallet, a watch and a tin containing about £40 in change which was being saved for a baby girl who was in the house at the time of the robbery.
At 5pm on New Year’s Day police called atHarris’s home on Apollo Street, where they found him hiding in the base of a divan bed. He was wearing the watch which was stolen during the robbery at Turpin Court.
He was taken into custody and questioned about the robbery.
On 8 January he was arrested in connection with the death of Elsie Mowbray.
