Just another one of those things that make the blood boil.
Why? Why is this piece of walking filth out free? Jeesh, he gets 8 yrs but is out in 4. What he do? Oh nothing much by today’s deplorable standards.
He only strangled he wife to death. Hey, he had a good excuse. He was angry or he might not have done it. She cheated on him and wanted a divorce and so he complied by giving her a permanent one. Ah, the fact that he was playing house also is okay. It’s just that damn it, wives are not supposed to do that.
Only guys have a license to cheat. And he didn’t simply strangle her. She had 43 separate injuries, 18 to her face.
But Brit justice deems is okay to let the slime free after 4 years. Well, I guess that’s all a life is worth in this country. Not certain it’s any different in the states either. But this is an outrage to end em all. AND .... he moves right back into the same house he murdered her in. Sensitive fellow what.
Take a look. Brit justice in, inaction.
Millionaire banker who killed wife in a jealous rage is back in the home where he strangled her with their two children after just three years in jail
Neil Ellerbeck, has moved into the smart suburban house where he took his wife Kate’s life after she asked for a divorce
By Stephen Wright
Just four years after he killed his wife in a jealous rage, a millionaire banker is out of jail and back living with their two children at the family home where he strangled her.
Neil Ellerbeck, 49, has moved into the smart suburban house where he took his wife Kate’s life after she asked for a divorce.
Mr Ellerbeck, who earned £170,000 as HSBC’s global chief of investment, feared losing his two children, £650,000 home and £1.3million fortune in the break-up.
He lashed out after bugging her phone calls and reading her texts, discovering she had been having an affair with her son’s tennis coach as well as having ‘close friendships’ with a childhood sweetheart and a chef at the Ritz.
She received 43 separate injuries in the attack in November 2008, around 18 of which were on her face.
After his furious assault, Ellerbeck collected their ten-year-old daughter from a school entrance exam.
He later insisted his 46-year-old wife had been alive when he left her.
During his Old Bailey trial three years ago, it emerged he had been having an affair himself during the troubled 14-year marriage.
He was acquitted of murder but jailed for eight years for manslaughter after a jury accepted he did not intend to kill his wife.
Time spent in custody awaiting trial and his good behaviour means he served a total of four years behind bars.
Before the killing, Mr Ellerbeck, described by police as a jealous and possessive man, was having a long relationship with a former colleague. But then he spied on his wife and found out she had been having an affair with tennis coach Pat McAdam.
Mr McAdam, 50, last night hit out at the legal system that has allowed Mr Ellerbeck to begin rebuilding his life after just four years behind bars, adding: ‘He destroyed Kate’s life, left two children without a mother and caused untold anguish to Kate’s sister, family and myself.
‘Yet when I asked victim liaison questions about his release, I kept being told the probation service was trying to make his life as “normal as possible” now that he is out.
I had hoped he would not be allowed back to the home where Kate died.’ Mr McAdam has been campaigning to change the law to make it harder for people sentenced for serious crimes to be released early.
He said: ‘Because he’s served half of his sentence, he has no need to wear an electronic tag, or report regularly to police, all apparently because of this desire to let him lead a normal life.
‘I will never be able to lead a normal life again and nor will other people involved in this case who knew and loved Kate.’
I have read someplace today, that some fellow cheated on some tax(?) or maybe it was embezzlement, and got 6 years. I didn’t pay too much attention to that story cos I was so taken up with this one. But it seems like killing someone if angry plus being a millionaire, becomes an out. That just isn’t right. Why should anyone who has so badly affected an entire family by the taking of a life as he did, be allowed to go free? Sorry gang. I just do not understand.
I have no problem with criminals who are only killing each other, as Ben Siegel once famously said.
Interesting times indeed. I was researching something early today and ran across someone who was charged with and prosecuted for, Grand Theft.
The year was 1910 the theft was a bicycle.
Isn’t this the England that used to deport children to Australia for stealing a loaf of bread or a handful of gruel?
Damn big pendulum in that land, and it’s swung mighty far in the past 175 years. Never fear, when the UK goes Sharia it will swill back right quickly.
Hey Peiper -
Just about everything I know regarding English society I’ve picked up from BMEWS. Most of what I read here is so outrageous to me that I just can’t fathom how, as Drew said, the pendulum has swung so far towards the absurd. Is it due to the EU, or were things already headed that way before the UK joined?
CenTex, I’ve a feeling things were turning that way before, but the EU and their court of human rights along with the leftist pc crowd drove the nail in a lot further.
LyndonB is the guy to consult on the subject. In fact, unless he happens by here and sees this himself, I’ll email your question to him.
