Mate, you cut off her ears you psycho
Sophie Elliott killing: Weatherston 'calm, collected'
Clayton Robert Weatherston set about killing and disfiguring Sophie Elliott "in a calm and collected manner", the Crown said as it opened the murder case against him in the High Court at Christchurch today. Crown prosecutor Marie Grills said 33-year-old Weatherston took the knife with him when he visited 22-year-old Miss Elliott's Dunedin home on January 9, 2008. The knife was found broken and covered in blood after the attack in which Miss Elliott was stabbed or cut 216 times. A pair of scissors was also found bent and bloodstained in the room. Weatherston, Miss Elliott's former boyfriend and her lecturer at Otago University, today pleaded not guilty to her murder but said he was guilty of manslaughter when the charge was read to him on the first day of the three-week trial before Justice Judith Potter and a jury. The defence had signalled that there would be "a partial defence of provocation", Justice Potter told the jury.
PROVOCATION? Mate you stabbed her 216 times, sliced her ears off and mutilated her genitalia – what possible defense of provocation is this psycho going to try and use? His delusional arrogance and creepy flesh colored beard makes Clayton Robert Weatherston our new pin up boy for psychopaths. His smug “Not guilty to Murder, Guilty of Manslaughter” was jaw dropping in its audacity. I am waiting to see his face if he gets a guilty verdict to murder, provocation indeed. What an arsehole.
