Stalker in bolt gun murder jailed


A "delusional" stalker who murdered a mother with a bolt gun, hours after she had warned police about him, has been jailed for life.

Mary Griffiths, 38, of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, died early on 6 May after the attack, which also left one of her three daughters with minor injuries.

John McFarlane, 40, who had admitted murder, was told by the Old Bailey judge he would serve at least 20 years.
