Stephen Rose leading Jamie Sawyer secures conviction for murder in case involving killing of defendant’s elderly grandmother in a care home

5. Oct 2018

A jury has deemed that Jennings was not suffering from diminished responsibility at the time he took his grandmother’s life.

It is accepted that Jennings had been diagnosed with a mental health condition and was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia at the time.

But while there is empathy towards his mental health, he remains wholly responsible for Ruby’s death and went to the care home that day with the intent to end her life. This is something he will have to live with.
