A sadistic schoolboy slaughtered his former girlfriend after she refused to be together with each other again. The innocent girl was stabbed multiple times at her house by her ex-boyfriend. Now the boy has been convicted, but the girl’s parents are dissatisfied and slammed the sentence provided to him.
Ellie Gould’s murderer ex-boyfriend was sentenced to life, but the court also provided a minimum of 12 and a half years to spend jail time, meaning he could roam out of prison freely after he gets thirty years old. Ellie’s father, Mathew, was fumed at the country’s judicial system that provided only 12 and half years of prison punishment for violent murder.
On May 3, this year, Thomas Griffiths sneaked into the girl room at her house and then murdered her by a knife, also from the girl’s kitchen. According to her father, who discovered his beloved daughter floating on the blood of her own body, Ellie was at the house revising the syllabus and study stuff for her upcoming exam.
Furthermore, the kid tried to cover up his crime by allegedly placing the girl’s hand on the murder weapon to show that she had killed herself. When he was attacking Ellie, up to some moment, she tried to fight back but couldn’t. During that process, he noticeably got injured, and to divert the investigators how he got injured, he allegedly posted a selfie with his pals and claimed he had been scratching himself.
The girl who had plans to enroll herself in the police couldn’t be saved although the emergency services reached her at the very first moment. The reports claimed that the girl dumped in the first place is because she wanted to concentrate fully on her studies to achieve her dream.
The family was devastated by the Attorney General’s Office when they claimed that they would fight the case until suitable punishment is provided to the monstrous teen. But the office sent them a letter and strictly objected them to process further because they will not send the case to the Court of Appeal. The letter sent to the parents mentioned that the case doesn’t cross the threshold of being unduly indulgent, The Sun confirmed.
