A woman in Scotland beat an elderly woman to death with a rolling pin in what is being called a “breathtakingly wicked” crime. Of course the “counter-jihad” does not talk about these crimes which happen frequently in Western societies, because they just want us to “focus” on what Muslims are doing, as opposed to combating all evil. Here is the report:
A “breathtakingly wicked” woman driven by her greed for cash and drugs is facing a life sentence after being convicted of murdering her 82-year-old neighbour by beating her to death with a rolling pin.
Sandra Weir, 41, pretended she was a friend to Mary Logie and acted as her self-appointed carer while stealing thousands of pounds to feed a heroin addiction.
The High Court in Edinburgh heard the killer’s sole focus in life was to acquire money for drugs and she was prepared to do anything for it, including murder.
The jury took just 55 minutes to find her guilty of killing Mrs Logie on January 5 this year and stealing around £4,000 over a period of two years.
Alex Prentice QC, prosecuting, told the court he believed the widow was attacked in her nightclothes at her home in Leven, Fife, in the morning and left seriously injured all day before Weir returned to deliver the final, fatal blows that evening.
The assault was so ferocious that Mrs Logie, known to friends as Rae, suffered 31 injuries to her head and neck and had multiple skull fractures.
The mother-of-three, who lived across the landing from Weir, also had injuries to her hand and fingers, indicating that she had tried to defend herself.
The court heard she trusted her neighbour with her bank card and in return was bullied and intimidated by her. When the pensioner eventually discovered Weir had been stealing from her she decided to allow her to pay the money back, rather than go to the police.
In a powerful statement after the verdict, the judge Michael O’Grady QC told the killer: “You too have heard and seen the dreadful detail of the injuries you inflicted upon her that day.
“You too have seen the hurt, the courage and the dignity of her children as they gave evidence and listened along with the rest of us.
“And I cannot help but observe that, throughout all of this, you have neither shown nor expressed a hint of compassion or a flicker of emotion.
“In these courts we do not weigh the worth of victims; nor should we. All life is precious. But on the evidence before me, Rae Logie was a decent, kind tolerant and harmless elderly lady.
“Indeed, she was decent, kind and tolerant towards you and offered you no harm or offence.
“That you should have betrayed her trust and kindness by theft and deceit is shocking enough. That, in the last year of her life, you should have preyed upon her and undermined her confidence and peace of mind is shocking also.
“But sadly – many of us have to come to recognise that such is the pernicious grip of drug addiction, betrayal and deceit come with the territory. But of course, it is the fact and manner of her death that are so breathtakingly wicked.”
He added that Weir had left her victim for dead that day and when she found later she that she was still alive she “simply finished her off”.
The trial heard earlier from Ronald Logie, 60, the victim’s son, that his mother always spoke favourably of her neighbour. The family even gave Weir a bottle of whisky for Christmas, days before she carried out the murderous assault.
Described in court as a “much loved mother, grandmother and friend”, Mrs Logie was born in Methil, Fife and was married to her husband Walter for 33 years.
The regular churchgoer had two sons and a daughter and had just spent Christmas in Yorkshire with her son Ronald days before her death.
Weir will be sentenced on January 12.
