A father who was previously cleared of torturing a grandmother to death for her bank pin number has been found guilty of her murder today in Hampshire’s first ever ‘double jeopardy’ case.

77 year old Georgina Edmonds was stabbed dozens of times and hit round the head with her own marble rolling pin by Matthew Hamlen. The 37-year-old was thought to be high on cocaine when he killed the widow at her country cottage in Brambridge in January 2008. Her body was found by her son Harry and her dog walker, Ian Wrightson.
