Man 'forced to eat his own privates by gang'

Man 'forced to eat his own privates by gang'

A vulnerable father-of-two was tortured and murdered, including being forced to eat one of his own testicles, by a gang of four people he thought were his friends, a court has heard.

Jimmy Prout, 45, was subjected to months of 'Dark Ages' abuse by the group before they dumped his body on wasteland, a jury was told.

Ann Corbett, 26, Zahid Zaman, 43, Myra Wood, 50, and Kay Rayworth, 56, deny murdering him and causing or allowing the death of a vulnerable adult.

They have all pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice.

The jury at Newcastle Crown Court heard the group of five had a strange relationship which had developed an almost 'cultish dimension'.

It is alleged a series of events in late 2015 created tensions which led to a number of serious assaults against Mr Prout.

The group then allegedly set about covering their tracks as well as fleecing his bank account, asking people if they had seen Mr Prout as they pretended to look for him.

Eventually on March 25, the police received a call from Zaman in which he claimed Corbett had attacked him and killed Mr Prout, in an attempt to 'throw her to the wolves'.



On attending 35 St Stephen's Way, North Tyneside, officers found Zaman, Rayworth and Wood, who claimed to have letters written by Corbett confessing to the murder.

Mr Greaney told jurors it was 'pure theatre' and invention because they all knew Mr Prout had been dead for more than six weeks.

The court heard Mr Prout was the sixth of eight children and lived a simple life, fathering two children, and was liked by the people who knew him.

He started to live as a tenant at 75 St Stephen's Way, which was owned by Rayworth, and he soon became integrated into the group.

Tensions arose when Zaman believed Mr Prout had played some part in a theft committed by Corbett's brother Ivan.

'He was not able to get Ivan Corbett, who had moved away, and so Jimmy Prout became an easy target,' said Mr Greaney.

Zaman, who uses a wheelchair, was described as vengeful and controlling and was determined to get his own back.

Mr Greaney said: 'The group considered that Jimmy Prout deserved punishment.
 
'They accept that Jimmy Prout was assaulted, but each of them wishes to reduce his or her own involvement in events, seeking to blame one or more of the others.'
