birminghammail.net : Three people beat Birmingham sex offender to death.
Two men and a woman beat a Birmingham man to death after he was recognized as a sex offender, a court was told.
Victim Dennis Golding, aged 49, was targeted because someone at the Birmingham hostel where he was living had seen him on a sex offenders’ wing in prison, it heard.
Dominic Maynard-Francis, 23, Darren Stevens 30, and Rebecca Gordon 20, all deny murdering Mr Golding.
They went to his room on a number of times and repeatedly assaulted him. Another resident living opposite heard his screams and later saw the defendants laughing, said Mr Goss. He said the resident also saw Gordon hitting the victim with a chair. Mr Golding was found lying unconscious with severe head injuries and eventually died three weeks later after also contracting pneumonia.
