HMP Wayland: Murderer Found Dead In Cell

36-year old Simon Hall spent 10 years protesting his innocence before admitting his guilt last year.

Hall, from Ipswich, was found dead in prison this morning.

He was given a life sentence in 2003 and held at HMP Wayland after the body of Joan Albert, 79 was found in her hallway at her home in Capel St Mary in 2001. She had been stabbed five times.

He claimed he was innocent for a decade, launching a series of appeals and winning the backing of MPs. He also appeared in a BBC documentary 'Rough Justice' which investigated alleged miscarriages of justice.

His campaign came to an abrupt halt when he admitted his guilt to authorities last year.
