Two prisoners who killed and disembowelled a fellow inmate so they could eat his liver have been sentenced to life imprisonment today.

Michael Parr and Nathan Mann were told by the judge they'd spend the rest of their lives behind bars after they were sentenced for the gruesome death of Mitchell Harrison.

Harrison, 23 was serving an indefinite sentence for raping a 13-year-old girl at Durham’s Frankland Prison when he was killed last October.

Michael Parr, 33, pleaded guilty to murder while fellow inmate Nathan Mann pleaded guilty to manslaughter due to diminished responsibility.

Sentencing at Newcastle Crown Court, Mr Justice Openshaw said: 'I consider this to be a murder of peculiar and unusual brutality.

'They will face the fact that they may well end their lives in prison.'

During sentencing, Mann was described as a 'classic cold, callous and homicidal psycopath'. Read More
