Jordan Bramble, 22, currently of Broadmoor, was found to have been responsible for the murder of Carl Thorpe, 46, at Dartmouth Park Hill hospital in February 2019.
Deemed unfit to stand trial, Bramble was the subject of a ‘trial of the facts’ which commenced at The Central Criminal Court on Monday, 16 November. A trial of the facts involves a jury hearing evidence in a defendant’s absence and coming to a conclusion on whether he/she did the acts alleged.
On Wednesday, 25 November the jury unanimously concluded that Bramble was responsible for murdering Carl Thorpe. He was detained under the Mental Health Act and will continue to receive treatment in a secure mental health facility.
