BURKE: SECURE WARD BECKONS FOR THE GRINNING HEAD KICKER

OXFORD A prisoner who grinned maniacally before killing a female custody officer by kicking her head like a football as been detained at Broadmoor mental hospital indefinitely. Humphrey Burke, 23, looked straight at Lorraine Barwell before twice lashing out at her while being escorted from court in handcuffs. He was being restrained by three other Serco guards and had his hands secured behind his back after appearing to be sentenced for attempted robbery, criminal damage and arson. The first blow knocked the 54-year-old to her knees and the second fractured her jaw causing a brain haemorrhage. The grandmother, from Romford, Essex, died two days later on 1 July last year after her life support machine was switched off. Burke - who dropped out of a law and philosophy course at Oxford Brookes University in 2014 - was later diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and has been found unfit to stand trial.
