Fenland man jailed for attempted murder after jury brings in 10-2 majority verdict

A JUDGE jailed a Fenland man for six and a half years for the attempted murder of his former partner shortly after telling him he came close to killing her.

Airport baggage handler Steven McCall, 24, of Leverington Road, was convicted by a jury yesterday (Friday) at Luton Crown Court of attempted murder and of threatening to kill Lianne Kearns, 21, of Stevenage.

The jury returned their guilty verdicts by a 10-2 majority.

McCall and Miss Kearns had been in a relationship but were living apart when he visited her last August.

As he was leaving he told her he was “going to hurt you like you hurt me. I am going to kill you”.
