Daniel Boulton, who was given two life sentences for murdering his ex-partner and her nine-year-old son, and a man found guilty of serious sexual offences against children, were among those put behind bars in Lincolnshire in February.
The Lincolnite’s court reporters cover the biggest cases heard in our region every day.
Here’s a round up of signifiant cases resulting in prison sentences in February 2022:
Daniel Boulton, 30, was given two life sentences after brutally murdering his ex-partner Bethany Vincent and her nine-year-old son Darren Henson in Louth.
A jury rejected Boulton’s case that “he lost control” due to his personality disorder and took just two hours to convict him of both murders.
Boulton must serve a minimum of 40 years in jail before he is eligible to apply for parole and may never be released.
Lincolnshire County Council are conducting a joint child safeguarding practice and domestic homicide review into the tragic double murder case.
