Slavery Leads to Death for Epileptic Man

Couple imprisoned epileptic man in shed for four months until he starved to death

But the three escaped a murder charge because it could not be proved that Mr Davies's epilepsy did not contribute to his death.

They were sentenced at Bristol Crown Court yesterday for false imprisonment and assault.

David Lehane, 36, and his 26-year-old girlfriend Amanda Baggus were each given ten years while their friend Scott Andrews, 28, was given a nine-year term.

They imprisoned the man, forced him to serve them, beat him, burned him, starved him, cashed his checks, and ultimately caused his death and got ten years or less each. Appalling.
