CNN NEWS 12 years for UK vampire slaying
August 2, 2002 Posted: 9:21 AM EDT (1321 GMT)
LONDON, England -- A British teenager has been jailed for 12
years for murdering his elderly neighbor and drinking her blood
in a vampire ritual.
Vampire-mad art student Mathew Hardman, 17, cut out Mabel
Leyshon's heart after stabbing her 22 times at her home in North
Wales, last November.
He sliced the 90-year-old's chest open and cut her heart out
before wrapping the blood-soaked organ in newspaper and
placing it next to two pokers arranged in the shape of a crucifix at
her feet, the court was told.
Hardman put the heart into a saucepan containing the
pensioner's blood and drank the blood -- believing the ritual
would make him immortal.
The teenager was obsessed by vampires and killed Leyshon in a
bid to become one of the creatures, the court heard.
