Two teen boys, 16 and 18, hacked to death a factory worker and tried to cut off his head with samurai sword

Two monster teens slashed a factory supervisor over 100 times with a samurai sword and tried to chop his head off in a gruesome murder.

Robert Wilson, 53, was investigating youths hanging around outside the plant in Huddersfield when he was hacked to death.

Luke Gaukroger wanted to decapitate the dad
Kiyran Earnshaw, 18, and 16-year-old Luke Gaukroger, who was 15 at the time, passed the 20ins blade between them during the attack while shouting “pass me the shank.”

A judge lifted a reporting restriction allowing Gaukroger to be named this afternoon.

Leeds Crown Court heard how chilling audio recorded on Robert’s phone captured the teen shouting: “Get his head, I want to cut his head, Kia I want to cut his head”.
The recording also captured the worker’s pleas as he begged the pair to stop during the “frenzied and senseless” ten-minute attack.

Both teens, who have previous convictions for violent offences, admitted murder and causing a colleague grievous bodily harm with intent.

Earnshaw was caged for life with a minimum of 22 years today, while Gaukroger was jailed for life with a minimum of 16 years and eight months.

Robert’s heartbroken wife Elaine said his death was “completely incomprehensible”, adding: “How on earth have we come to this and why?”

She also revealed she received a letter from one of the defendants saying it was the “worse night of my life and ‘I’m sorry”.

Elaine told in an emotional statement how she went into a “downward spiral” after learning about her husband’s horrific death.
