A seriously sick defence

  1. LONDON (Reuters) - The man accused of murdering model Sally Anne Bowman had sex with her dead body after drunkenly stumbling across her corpse but denies murdering her, a court was told on Tuesday.

    Chef Mark Dixie, 37, was said to have "taken advantage of the situation" after discovering the 18-year-old's body in Croydon, south of London, the jury heard.

    Brian Altman, prosecuting, warned the Old Bailey jury that graphic details would form a large part of the case because of the unusual nature of the defendant's "desperate" defence.

    "It is born out of desperation for all too obvious reasons," Altman told the court. "The Crown say Dixie killed that young girl."

    Bowman was stabbed in the neck and abdomen at about 4 a.m. in Blenheim Crescent, Croydon in September 2005, shortly after being dropped off close to her home by her boyfriend, the jury was told.

    Sexual indignities were performed as the victim lay dying or was dead, Altman told the court, including sexual intercourse.

    The victim's body was discovered by a neighbour when she looked out of her window about two hours later and saw a pair of legs sticking out from behind a skip in a house opposite.

    "There she found, half on the drive and half on the pavement, the naked and bloodied body of Sally Anne," the prosecution said.

    "She had been savagely and brutally killed. She had been stabbed several times in the neck and abdomen.

    "The knife passed through her abdomen and exited out the back. The motivation for the killing was sex for the killer's own sexual gratification."

    The prosecution went on to say that forensic tests showed DNA from semen found on the victim's body came from the defendant.

    His bloody fingerprint was also found on her left shoe.

    The chances of the DNA coming from anyone else were one billion to one, Altman said.

    Bite marks were also on her body, the prosecution said.

    "Dixie admits he had sex with her after her death but he denies he was the killer," Altman said.

    "He says he was just in Blenheim Crescent by chance under the influence of drink and drugs and he chanced upon her body.

    "He says he took advantage of the situation and had sex with her when she was dead. That, we say astonishingly, is his defence," said Altman.

    Bowman was a talented musician and had won a place at the British Record Industry Trust School.

    At the time of her death she was working as a hairdresser and part-time model. Her dream was to become a top fashion model.

    Dixie, of no fixed address, had been celebrating his birthday on the night Bowman was killed.

    The trial continues.

    if I'm not mistaken, didn't something like that once happen in an episode of CSI:MIAMI?
  2. 3rd time lucky eh? Or am I having severe bouts of deja-vu??
  3. The guy should be banged up for a long time (read for rest of his natural), even if he didn't kill her.
  4. I would rather stick a bayonet into this mans chest than any other soldier/militant that our forces are fighting today.

    These fuck3rs make me sick, he will get what 15/20years (if found guilty)
    So he will be walking the streets when my children come into there late teens. That sends a shiver down my spine to know he will have the oppertunity to wreck more lives.

    Bring back the death penalty, or at least raise the minimum life term to 50years in prison. :evil:
  5. someone should stick a massive dildo down his throat, causing him to gag to death.
  6. "Life" should mean life
  7. He "just chanced on the body"? As you do...
  8. and it was still warm

    Especially if you hang out in MDN's cellar
  10. Speechless.
  11. Guess whose off to Rampton or Broadmoor?

    Even IF that was the truth, he is one sick MF! He's probably done that as well! .. .. :wink:
  12. Everything you just wrote - I second. :evil:

    I have more respect for the Taliban/AQ; evil as they are, at least they kill for a cause, no matter how twisted. Scum like this kill for thrills.

    Oh, and his a-big-boy-done-it-and-ran-away "defence" is about as believable as Huntly claiming he "accidently" killed Holly and Jessica...
  13. Should beat him until dying of internal bleeding then leave him outside a gaybar and see how he likes it :twisted:

  14. £1000 says he'll spend less than 10 years in jail no matter of the outcome.
