“Psychopath” murder suspect “threatened witness’s family”
A WITNESS to the fatal attack on a Rotherham pensioner says murder suspect Dale Jones (30) — whom he described as a “psychopath” — threatened to hurt him and his family if he went to police.
Kieran Rice, of Oak Meadows, East Dene, testified at Sheffield Crown Court this morning.
Prosecutor Mr Andrew Robertson asked whether Jones, of East Bawtry Road, had said anything to him the next day about the attack in which pensioner Mushin Ahmed (pictured) died.
Murder accused “bragged about fatal beating”
THE PARTNER of a witness to the murder of Rotherham OAP Mushin Ahmed says suspect Dale Jones (30) bragged about the pensioner’s death.
Kelly Cannon, Shane Rice’s partner, told Sheffield Crown Court she and Rice bumped into Jones in a Tesco car park on September 3, nearly a month after the attack.
Murder accused “tried to stop fatal attack”
A MURDER trial witness has said suspect Damien Hunt (30) actually tried to stop co-defendant Dale Jones (30) from beating pensioner Mushin Ahmed to death.
Kieran Rice, of Oak Meadows, East Dene, said he saw Mr Ahmed (81) being attacked, but could not say whether Hunt or Jones struck him first.
Cross-examining, Mr Jason Pitter, defending Hunt, said: “There was an argument going on between you, Mr Hunt and Mr Jones. “CCTV shows Mr Jones going first after Mr Ahmed.”
