Former engineer Francesco John Prevete has this evening been convicted of the murder of amateur boxer Craig Maddocks, who died a horrific death in pub toilets in his home town.

Prevete, 46, had denied murder but was convicted on the 10th day of the trial at Mold Crown Court after a retirement of just over three-and-a-half hours.

Prevete, dressed in a smart dark, suit, white shirt and bow tie, was found guilty of murdering ex-boxer Craig Maddocks in a frenzied knife attack in a toilet cubicle at the Cambrian Vaults public house in the town.

The victim had 52 stab wounds.

Mr Justice Jeremy Baker thanked the jury and said that they had reached their verdict on clear evidence.
