Four men recruited to rob a Derbyshire showjumper, who was murdered a few months later, have been jailed.

Tania Moore, 26, was punched, kicked, and beaten with a baseball bat at her home in Alkmonton in 2003.

Craig Stonier, John Booth, Jason Bloor and Darryl Worsdale, all from Stoke-on-Trent, were jailed for a total of 10 years at Nottingham Crown Court.

Mark Dyche, 36, was convicted of the murder of Ms Moore earlier this month after shooting her dead in 2004.

Dyche killed Ms Moore in her car after a year-long campaign of intimidation, which included threats to gouge her eyes out.

He paid the four men £2,000 to rob Ms Moore.

Judge Mr Justice Bean told them: "I accept you had nothing to do with the murder of Tania Moore, but what you were involved in was very serious.

"There was evidence at the trial that Tania Moore was traumatised by this robbery and afterwards she lived in fear of further attacks."

Stonier, 41, of Bartholomew Road, Meir; Booth, 23, of Anson Road, Meir; and Worsdale 18, from Stoke admitted conspiracy to rob. Bloor, 32, of Longton, was convicted of the same offence.

Stonier was jailed for two and a half years, Booth for four years, Bloor for two and a half years and Worsdale sent to a young offenders institution for a year.

Colin Colley, 41, from Stoke, was jailed for three and a half years last week for conspiracy to inflict grievous bodily hard.

He was recruited by Dyche to help attack Ms Moore on the night she was murdered.
