Stephen Lang, 20, has today been convicted by a jury at Truro Crown Court of the murder of his grandfather, Tom Lang, 91. He attacked him at his sheltered accommodation, lifting him from his chair, throwing him to the floor and then stealing £300 from his wallet. Mr Lang died three days later.
– DI Stuart Ellis, Devon and Cornwall Police
The crime is made all the more tragic as Stephen Lang appeared to have a close relationship with his grandfather and the incident has had a devastating effect on the whole of the family. I cannot begin to understand Stephen Lang’s motivation for this crime, but the fact that he could inflict these injuries on his own grandfather is truly shocking.
– Lang family statement
Stephen had no reason to kill his grandfather, who would have gladly given him money had he asked for it. We will never get over the death of Tom but as a family now Stephen has been found guilty we can begin to rebuild our lives and move on.
Stephen Lang will be sentenced tomorrow (Friday 28 June).
