Martin Forshaw

On 7th May, 2009 Forshaw beat beat Claire Howarth to death with a club hammer then put her into the car. He drove around for a while before getting out and putting her in the drivers seat, he sat in the passenger seat and reached over to press the accelerator, then crashing into a hedge. He then dialled 999 to report the fake accident, claiming she was not wearing her seatbelt.

The post mortem found she had been beaten around the head with a lump hammer, causing severe head trauma and 14 separate injuries to her head and neck.

No-one knows why he did it. He was jailed for life with a minimum 18 year tariff. He should remain unforgiven.
