Three prisoners have been convicted of a prison attack on Jeremy Green, the former army lieutenant jailed for life for the murder of estate agent Nicole Waterhouse.
The York Press reports that Green, 27, was last year ordered to serve a minimum of 34 years in prison for the murder of Nicole Waterhouse and the attempted murder of her friend Karen Browne, in October 2013.
The newspaper reports that during a nine-hour ordeal he tortured, stabbed and smothered them while texting messages purporting to come from them.
Two weeks after starting his sentence, he was beaten up in a corridor after leaving a gym session at Wakefield prison, receiving a broken nose and cheekbone.
Now a court in Leeds has found three men guilty of inflicting grievous bodily harm to him, with two other prisoners acquitted of the same offence.
All five are Muslims and Green claimed in evidence he was attacked because of his previous army service in Afghanistan. However, the York Press report says he also admitted he was a fantasist, had only been in Afghanistan for short periods of acclimatisation and only ever left Camp Bastian on one patrol before he was court martialled from the Yorkshire Regiment for stealing from fellow officers.
