Married police sentence increased after killing the lover who told his wife about the relationship
Former Dorset Police officer Timothy Brehmer, 41, killed Claire Parry, mother of two, by sending a text message to his wife on his phone saying “I’m cheating on you.”
The sentence of unintentional manslaughter for a married police officer who strangled his lover after he disclosed his relationship to his wife was increased by the Court of Appeal.
Former Dorset Policeman Timothy Brehmer killed Claire Parry, a 41-year-old mother of two, by sending a message on her phone to his wife saying “I’m cheating on you”.
Ms. Parry, 41, died during what Brehmer described as a “kerfuffle” in her car in the parking lot of the Horns Inn in Dorset on May 9 last year.
Brehmer of Hordle, Hampshire, claimed that the married nurse was accidentally fatally injured in order to push her out of Citroen.
He was cleared of murder by the jury after the trial at the Salisbury Crown Court, but had previously admitted to the murder of Parry, for which he was sentenced to 10 and a half years in prison in October.
Following an appeal by the Office of the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) as part of the unnecessary mitigating prison sentence program, the Court of Appeal increased his sentence by three years to 13 and a half in a decision Friday.
The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett, said that the adjudicating Judge, Judge Jacobs, “gave little weight to the aggravating factors he identified.”
Lord Burnett said: “We cancel the 10-and-a-half-year prison sentence and give it 13-and-a-half-years in its place. The Court of Appeal rejected Brehmer’s proposal to lower his sentence.
Lord Burnett said in the verdict: “We have carefully considered the circumstances in which Claire Parry died at the hands of this criminal.
“With regard to the (sentencing) judge, we are convinced that he gave too little weight to the aggravating factors he had identified. The judge added:“ Following the attack, the offender’s behavior and lies would be condemned and the attention was calculated in a way that diverted his possessions. finished.
“These aggravating factors have the effect of rising significantly above the starting point (to fix the sentence) without considering the mitigating factors.”
The Court of Appeal also found that Mr Judge Jacobs gave Brehmer a massive reduction in his criminal appeal of the murder charge. “We doubt that the impact of the criminal’s defense in July 2020 provided too much consolation or comfort to the Claire Parry family,” the judge said.
After the verdict, Acting Attorney General Michael Ellis QC said: “Because of his actions, Claire Parry’s family lost a wife and mother, and her community lost a devoted nurse.
“Today I welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to increase Brehmer’s sentence.”
