Murderer of disabled man faces life term
Harrison, of Bennett Road, Scunthorpe, admitted murder but his co-accused Campbell, of Kingston View, Barton-on-Humber, denied the charge and was tried at Teesside Crown Court.
He was found guilty yesterday by a majority verdict of 11 to one, and both will be sentenced on November 23.
Following the bloody attack, Mr Bush’s prosthetic leg was removed as he was stripped and the attackers stole the leg from his home, along with other property including the dying man’s mobile telephone.
The leg was later dumped and burned with other items in an area known as Clarky’s Wood.
Senior investigating officer Det Supt Dena Fleming said: “I have never known such a vicious act of violence.”
