A crazed couple have been found guilty of attempted murder after horrendously trying to cut their friend’s heart out.
Sick pair Jon Hamblin and Jessica Whinham subjected their friend Paul Binks to the brutal attack while he slept, but woke up to find his intestines sprawled everywhere while he was being strangled with a phone charger.
He was then put in a bath by the North Shields couple who told him that they were going to drown him, The Daily Star reports.
Having pleaded for his life, he was taken to hospital after getting help at a nearby couple’s home and survived the horrifying attack.
Hamblin and Whinham claim that the motive for the attack was that Mr Binks told Hamblin that Whinham, who is a porn model, was a “grass”, and told him that he should be careful of her.
He was allegedly told by a drug dealer: “(She) was a grass and had got lads in trouble in the past for things that were not substantiated.”
Recalling what happened, he said: “I said ‘what’s going on, why am I on the floor’. Jon said ‘you’ve been f****** stabbed’.
“I was confused. I said ‘who’s stabbed me like’ and he said ‘f****** me, I’ve cut your f****** heart out, you are going to die.’
“I looked down and pulled my top up and there was a tube, my intestine.
“I was trying to push it back in. I remember him trying to go for my throat and I put my hand up.
“He was standing over me with a knife, I couldn’t understand.
“I thought I was dreaming – I started thinking I’m badly injured here. I was bleeding profusely.”
Speaking after the hearing, in which jurors at Newcastle Crown Court took just 30 minutes to find the pair guilty, Acting Detective Chief Inspector Jill Hall said: “Hamblin and Whinham’s treatment of their victim was inhuman – it was a monstrous attack against a man who believed he was safe and secure in the company of friends.
“No prison sentences will ever take away the pain of what’s happened, but I hope this guilty verdict gives him some comfort knowing that his attackers have been brought to justice and will be made to pay for their vile actions.
“Thank you also to the couple who took in the victim in his hour of need and assisted him until paramedics arrived. The victim saw the very worst in humanity that day but also some of the very best when these strangers rushed to his aid.”
