The pathologist who examined Mansfield murder victim Emiel Blankert found an extensive list of injuries that he had suffered before he died.

Dr Stuart Hamilton, forensic pathologist for the East Midlands, took to the stand at Nottingham Crown Court today, Thursday 19th June, to give evidence in the trial of Michelle Swift (48) who is accused of murdering her partner, Mr Blankert (48), in December of last year.

Mr Blankert suffered a perforated bowel after what the crown has described as a ‘sustained attack’ which they claim happened at the couple’s flat on Ladybrook Place.
