Grandmother, 67, raped and strangled by porn-obsessed neighbour, 26, after he watched online films

Here’s more compelling evidence that violent pornography use fuels violence against women and brutal sex crimes. (WARNING: Very graphic and disturbing!)

— Grandmother, 67, raped and strangled by porn-obsessed neighbour, 26, after he watched online films of women being attacked
— Naked body of grandmother found wedged between bed and wall
— Jackson, jailed for life, not to be considered for parole for 28 years

[Daily Mail – UK] — Irene Lawless, 67, was put through an ‘horrific’ ordeal by evil loner Darren Jackson who spent his days watching internet porn.

Police found Jackson, 26, had been searching internet websites for ‘mature women’, and ‘women raped while asleep’, the court heard today.

One film Jackson watched involved a mature woman being raped by a burglar.

Jackson broke into Mrs Lawless’s bungalow in the early hours of the morning and attacked her while she slept.

He raped her twice then strangled her, leaving her naked body wedged between the bed and a wall.

Jackson was today jailed for life with a recommendation he is not considered for parole for 28 years.

Prosecutor Elwen Evans said: ‘Jackson had spent the previous night in a nearby town in local pubs.

‘He was picked up by his stepfather at 4.30am and brought back to the house where he was living next door to Mrs Lawless.

‘Sometime after 5am Jackson broke into Irene’s home by climbing through an open window.

‘He made his way into the front bedroom where Irene was sleeping. Her dentures were in solution beside her bed.

‘In her bedroom he seriously physically and sexually assaulted her.’

Swansea Crown court heard the peaceful, thoughtful artist suffered 20 fractures to her ribs during the double rape attack in the quiet village of Llanllwni, near Llandovery, Carmarthenshire.

Miss Evans said: ‘Jackson then killed her by manual strangulation and left her naked body on her bedroom floor.’

After emptying the handbag he dumped it in a neighbour’s plant pot and drove Mrs Lawless’s black Audi A3 to Deal, kent where he has friends.

The court was shown CCTV of Jackson ‘calmly’ buying petrol just 20 minutes away from the brutal attack on 22 January 2012.

He was arrested just 5 hours and 50 minutes after neighbours discovered the grandmother’s body.

The court heard Jackson had a scratch below his right eye from where Mrs Lawless had put up a ‘significant struggle’.

Miss Evans said: ‘During that period he had been using a computer in his parent’ house.

‘Police looked at his internet searches and discovered a keen interest in websites dealing with rape, mature women, forceful oral sex and sex with sleeping women.’

Retired shorthand typist Mrs Lawless lived alone on the Bryndulais Estate in the village of Llanllwni, Carmarthenshire.

She painted local scenes and made soaps and candles which she sold at galleries and craft markets.

Miss Evans said: ‘She was a highly regarded, mother, sister, grandmother and friend to may people in the local community.

‘Painting and gardening and a wide variety of craft hobbies were Irene’s favourite pastimes.

‘She was a healthy living, peaceful, calm and thoughtful woman and was always hard-working and industrious. She was a real home body.’

Jackson, of Llanllwni, admitted murder and two charges of rape.

The court heard his only previous convictions were for minor motoring offences.

Judge John Royce QC said: ‘Irene Lawless was a much-loved mother, sister and grandmother.’

‘She was one of life’s givers, not takers and had everything to live for.’

Turning to Jackson he said: ‘It’s clear from the computer that you had a perverted interest in rape.

‘You had recently accessed a number of rape scene websites including one called real brutal sex.

‘What is clear is that you brutally raped Irene Lawless and caused significant injuries to her face and body.

‘They reveal the heartless violence you meted out to a defenceless grandmother for your own perverted gratification.

‘It is clear she must have put up a significant struggle.

‘These sickening rapes culminated in you strangling Mrs Lawless. The humiliation and mental and physical anguish you subjected her to are horrific.

‘They are nothing short of evil depravity.’

Jackson was jailed for life for murder and 12 years for each of the rape attacks to run concurrently.

He ordered that Jackson must not be considered for parole for 28 years.

The judge added: ‘Due to your warped and perverted mind, you may certainly well never be released and spend your remaining life in prison.’

‘Many will say that is no less than you deserve.’
