Jailed this week in Bristol: A rapist, speeding drug dealer and murdering husband

The list of those Jailed this week at Bristol Crown Court include a rapist, a murderer and a drug-dealer who crashed his BMW.

Mark Marchant

The 37-year-old of Handley Road in Cardiff was jailed for eight years for raping a woman who had crashed out on a sofa after a party in a Weston-super-Mare flat.

The woman told a judge at Bristol Crown Court that she wanted to ‘burn her skin off’ to rid herself of her abuser’s touch.

After people left to buy more drink and drugs Mark Marchant picked the woman up off the sofa, took her down to a bedroom and forced himself on her, the court heard.

When she regained consciousness due to the pain, Marchant pulled her towards him and attempted to have consensual sex instead of stopping.

Convicted rapist guilty of murdering Dodd

It has taken almost 20 years to convict a known rapist of murdering West Australian teenager Hayley Dodd, based largely on a recovered earring, but for her family there can be no closure without a body.

“Tell us where Hayley is so we can put her to rest,” sister Toni said in a message to the killer, Francis John Wark, outside the Supreme Court on Monday.

“Give our family some peace. We didn’t just lose a sister, we lost parents as well.”

She said she never thought this day would come, adding the family had to sit through the “horrible” seven-week, judge-alone trial to learn every detail and see if there were clues about the location of Hayley’s body.

Wark, 61, has already flagged considering an appeal after a visibly shaken Justice Lindy Jenkins ruled on Monday that he was guilty of murder but not wilful murder.

Jeffery Barry found guilty of murdering refugee after calling him rapist and terrorist

A man has been found guilty of murdering a Kurdish refugee after accusing him of being a rapist and terrorist.

Jeffery Barry, a paranoid schizophrenic, had been released from a secure psychiatric unit hours before he stabbed Kamil Ahmad to death in Bristol in July 2016.

The court heard that the sustained knife attack ended with Barry slicing off his victim’s penis.

The 56-year-old admitted killing Mr Ahmad only pleaded guilty to manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility.

But after a two week trial at Bristol Crown Court, a jury concluded he deliberately targeted his 48-year-old neighbour and was of sound mind at the time of the incident.

The court heard Barry had been discharged from a private mental health hospital the day before he attacked Mr Ahmad, having been sectioned in June.

Psychiatrists had opposed Barry’s release but a mental health tribunal ruled that he should be discharged.

On the day he was freed, he spent

Jeffrey Barry, a paranoid schizophrenic, had been released from a secure psychiatric unit hours before he stabbed Kamil Ahmad to death in Bristol in July 2016.

The court heard that the sustained knife attack ended with Barry slicing off his victim’s penis, leaving his mutilated body in a bedroom.

But after a two-week trial at Bristol Crown Court, a jury concluded he deliberately targeted his 48-year-old neighbour and was of sound mind at the time of the incident.

Ms Justice May told the jury Barry’s mental illness “wasn’t one that was enough to reduce the offence in this case but it exists all the same”, adding: “It is a chronic, enduring mental illness that requires treatment.”
