27-year-old admits killing woman found dead in bull pen

A man, who strangled a woman on a farm in the UK, will be sentenced next month.

Author and veterinary pharmacist, Katherine Bevan, was found dead in a bullpen near Honiton in East Devon on January 3rd.

It was initially feared that the 53-year-old woman has been crushed while tending to a bull in a stock pen.

Her death was not treated as suspicious initially, however, a post-mortem examination trigged a murder inquiry.

Court

Police arrested a man on suspicion of murder. On Thursday, October 29th, 27-year-old Luigi Palmas admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

The court heard that the Italian was suffering from a “severe” psychiatric disorder at the time.

The case was adjourned for sentencing on November 13th, 2020.
