A third man has had his murder conviction quashed Shaun Barker's (pictured) death Three men smashed Shaun Barker's kneecaps and hands, bashed him with a golf club, kept him in a fishing esky and put honey on his testicles for ants to eat. But a court has now found that none of the trio meant for him to die. Mr Barker's remains were found charred and scattered in remote forest near Gympie four months after he was kidnapped from the Gold Coast. The Brisbane Court of Appeal on Tuesday quashed William Francis Dean's murder conviction, but substituted it with a manslaughter conviction after finding there was no intention to kill Mr Barker. Stephen John Armitage, pictured tied to a bed in a bizarre photograph, previously successfully appealed his murder conviction, but a guilty verdict for manslaughter was handed down Dean's co-accused Stephen Armitage and Matthew Armitage previously successfully appealed their convictions, with the court quashing murder convictions but handing … [Read more...] about Three men found guilty of killing and torturing an ice dealer – holding him hostage in an ESKY and putting honey on his genitals for ants to eat – have their convictions QUASHED

David Cameron today faced a barrage of attacks in Parliament over his EU deal. Nothing odd about that - except a big chunk of it came from behind his back. Mirror Online counted at least 23 Tory MPs who undermined their Prime Minister's prize renegotiation in just two hours as part of a full-blooded assault. Many even wore the garish yellow and black ties of the "Go" campaign to get Britain out of the EU. You can watch them all in our fun sped-up video above - or see some of their quotes below. Read more: Jeremy Corbyn said Labour backed staying in the EU , but pressure on the PM to please Tory eurosceptics had tainted the deal. He blasted the PM for allowing the "Tory Party drama that's being played out in front of us" to overtake the real issues in the EU. He added: "You have been negotiating the wrong goals, in the wrong way, for the wrong reasons". And he called on more measures to protect the "grotesque exploitation of migrant workers" and accused Tories of wanting a "bonfire … [Read more...] about Watch David Cameron being humiliated by 23 of his own MPs over EU deal
A MAN has suffered brutal third-degree burns on his leg after his vape pen exploded in his trouser pocket. The horrific basketball-size wound has led Nader Harb to take legal action against the company his lawyers say are responsible for the damage. The man, from Cleveland, Ohio, was badly burned after the battery for his vape device exploded in his pocket, Fox8 reported. Nader had recently switched from smoking cigarettes to using a vape pen, said his attorney Tom Merriman. Merriman added that the blast happened while Nader was at work in June 2018. 'BURST INTO FLAMES' Nader was setting up for the day at the butcher shop he works at when the extra lithium-ion LGHG2 battery in his right pocket burst into flames in the side pocket of his combat trousers.He told WKYC: "The pain, I never felt before. I mean, I got cut by machines, I got run over by a car, I've never seen pain like this." The lawyer told the news channel: “He wasn’t smoking at the time, he was working, and it … [Read more...] about Vape causes brutal third-degree burns to man after e-cig explodes in his pocket
Usually, facial trauma doesn’t kill you, but it can cause significant disfigurement. Working as a surgeon in Glasgow in the early 2000s, Christine Goodall treated hundreds, if not thousands, of patients with injuries to the neck, face, head and jaw. Sometimes, the injuries were caused by a baseball bat, with shattered bones and bruising as bad as from a car accident. More often than not, it was a knife. A slash across the forehead or cheek, leaving a scar etched across the face; a machete wound to the jaw, slicing through the skin and breaking the bone underneath. One young man came into the hospital in the middle of the night with a knife wound across his face. Goodall dreaded the morning ward round the next day, when she would have to tell him that it would be impossible to avoid a serious scar. But his reaction surprised her. “He was very offhand about it,” she says. “Some of his friends came to see him later that afternoon and I realised why it wasn’t … [Read more...] about Should we treat crime as something to be cured rather than punished?
