Stalker will appeal his life sentence

Joe Willis stalked Helen Pearson for five years before stabbing her

A stalker who subjected a neighbour to a five-year campaign of intimidation before stabbing her is trying to overturn his life sentence for attempted murder.

Joe Willis was convicted in April of attacking Helen Pearson from Exeter with a pair of scissors. He stalked her for five years before the attempted murder in St Bartholomew's Cemetery last October.
