Hill attacked the doctor after his wife said she was leaving him for the GP
A man found guilty of murdering his wife's GP lover in South Yorkshire has been jailed for life.
The remains of Dr Colin Shawcross, 58, were found buried in a wood near the village of Harthill months after he went missing from his Sheffield home.
Andrew Hill, 49, was told he must serve a minimum of 17 years in jail.
Sheffield Crown Court heard Hill drove to the doctor's home and attacked him after his wife Julie announced she was leaving him for the GP.
Dr Shawcross, of Ashley Grove, Aston, was reported missing on 24 January last year.
His remains were found in Loscar Woods more than five months later.
Dr Shawcross was separated from his wife and had retired from full-time work at his Firth Park Surgery in Sheffield.
But he continued to work as a doctor, doing hospital work and working as a locum GP.
Dr Shawcross had been missing since 24 January
Speaking after the case, Det Supt Mick Mason from South Yorkshire Police said: "One year ago, Dr Colin Shawcross was subjected to a brutal and unprovoked attack, which resulted in his death.
"His body was removed from the scene in his own vehicle and was not recovered by the police for over five months."
Mr Mason added: "This has clearly been a very difficult time for Mrs Shawcross and her family but throughout they have conducted themselves with great dignity.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Shawcross and her sons for their support throughout the police investigation."
