Liam Cunliffe, The gloating 'killer': Burglar boasts on Facebook after being told he wouldn't face charge over the death of his elderly victim

A teenage burglar who broke into an 80-year-old woman’s home gloated on Facebook, ‘Bring it on, easy!’ just minutes after a judge ruled he and his accomplice would not face manslaughter charges over her death.

Pauline Reddick suffered a stroke after Louis Corbett and Liam Cunliffe broke into her home at 3.30am. She died in hospital eight hours later.

After her death, the two 18-year-olds were charged with manslaughter and the case against them was put before a judge.

Prosecutors argued that they were culpable because they would have been aware that an elderly person lived at the house after hearing her call out and by looking at the decor.

But although Judge Neil Ford, QC, admitted that Mrs Reddick ‘may not have died’ if the two thugs had not broken into her home, he told Bristol Crown Court that the pair could not have known she was susceptible to strokes – and were therefore not responsible for her death.

Both Corbett and Cunliffe have pleaded guilty to burglary and will be sentenced next month.

After yesterday’s ruling, the teenage burglars bragged about the decision on Facebook.

With no regard for his victim, Cunliffe, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, wrote: ‘Liam Cunliffe is a happy bunni. All i can say DROPPED!! YAA.

‘I’m only lookin at six months. Haa. Bring it on. Easy!’

And before Judge Ford’s decision, Corbett had written: ‘I’m not goin (sic) prison. I refuse.’
Mrs Reddick was described as a stalwart of her community.

Yesterday, her family was too upset to talk about the ruling, but a close friend said it was ‘no justice’. Read More
