It was December 2021 when Christopher Guest More Jnr, who once was one of Europe’s most wanted men, was found guilty of murdering Brian Waters.

He was convicted by a jury at Chester Crown Court following a month-long retrial for the murder and torturing of the dad of two in 2003.  

Mr Waters was whipped with canes, hung upside down by his ankles and beaten using a metal bar. He was also tied to a chair and a binbag was set alight above his head, causing the melting plastic to drip down onto him.

His children were also attacked when they arrived at the farm and his wife was kidnapped from their family home in Nantwich.

When police arrived at Burnt House Farm they found Mr Waters’ lifeless body in the milking parlour, his assailants had scarpered.

These are the pictures taken by police at the scene of the murder.
