– Paul Hewitt, Senior Crown Prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service, Wales.
Peter Lewis was a vulnerable man who posed no threat to anyone, least of all William Jones. His murder was an appalling attack, carried out by a killer who has taken no responsibility for his actions, instead seeking to suggest that he himself was the one being attacked. Thankfully, this trial has exposed his deceit.Sadly, William Jones’ conviction will not bring Peter Lewis back to his family and friends. We hope, however, that today’s guilty verdict may bring some small measure of comfort to them, as they seek to move forward with their lives.
A 32-year-old man from Cardiff has been convicted of murdering Peter Lewis, who was 68 and had learning difficulties. William Jones, 32 and from Adamsdown in the city, stabbed him to death last April.
