David Hilder jailed for David Guy 'body parts' killing

A man who killed and dismembered his friend has received a life sentence for his manslaughter.

David Guy's torso, legs and pelvis were found in two places on Southsea beach in Hampshire in July 2012. The rest of his body has not been recovered.

David Hilder, 47, of Richmond Road, Southsea, was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter at Winchester Crown Court.

Jurors heard Hilder disposed of the body parts using his bicycle.

Justice David Bean said Hilder would serve a minimum of 12 years in prison.
