Gosport murder trial: Detective says Brendan Rowan-Davies is 'dangerous'
A DETECTIVE had said Kelly-Anne Case’s killer is a ‘dangerous’ individual who perpetrated a ‘planned attack’.
It comes as Brendan Rowan-Davies, 29, of Trinity Close, Gosport, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 30 years for the sadistic and sexual murder of 27-year-old at her home in Grange Crescent, Gosport, on July 30 at around 7.45am. He set two fires in a bid to cover his tracks.
He was convicted of murder and arson at Winchester Crown Court after a 16-day trial where he denied the charges.
Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Toby Elcock said: ‘This was a horrific and planned attack on a young woman, and our thoughts remain with Ms Case’s children, friends and family.
‘The defendant’s denials have meant that the people closest to Kelly have had to endure the stresses of the trial process, but I hope the verdicts returned by the jury today will help them start to move forward from this.
‘I would like to thank those whose help throughout the investigation and the subsequent trial has resulted in Rowan-Davies being brought to justice.’
