Ex-soldier found guilty of Murder

A former soldier has been found guilty of murdering a dog walker who suffered 45 knife wounds.

Alexander Palmer, 24, was accused of attacking Peter Wrighton, with a knife in woodland near East Harling, Norfolk, last August.

At Nottingham Crown Court, the former soldier had admitted being in the area but denied murdering Mr Wrighton in East Harling, Norfolk, last summer.

Palmer, of Cringleford, near Norwich, will be sentenced later.

During the trial the court was told police were initially unaware of Mr Palmer and concluded the victim had been attacked and killed by some sort of animal, due to his throat injuries.
