CCTV shows deranged killer singing to himself after decapitating mum-of-three

A man who decapitated a woman has been seen in newly-released footage hours after the attack.

Paranoid schizophrenic killer Luke Deeley, 26, was pictured on the floor singing to himself after murdering 65-year-old June Fox-Roberts.

He entered her home in Llantwit Fardre, near Pontypridd, before beating the mother-of-three to death, dismembering her with an axe and placing her limbs in bags, reports WalesOnline.

Newport Crown Court on Friday (April 28) heard how following the attack in the early hours of June 21, 2021 he left the St Anne's Drive address after he tried to clean up the scene.

Inside the property he shaved and dyed his hair before heading to a trailer in Creigiau Tyres.

The remains of Mrs Fox-Roberts were found later that day by her daughter who had become concerned when she couldn't get hold of her.

Deeley was later caught on CCTV which seemingly saw him singing to himself as he sat on the floor.

On June 23 he was arrested claiming he believed a group of people were out to get him. He said a “higher power” had told him he needed to kill someone.

He was sectioned under Section 45 of the Mental Health Act and would later plead guilty to manslaughter in diminished responsibility.

A trio of psychiatric reports agreed he was suffering an "abnormality of mind".

That abnormality at the time of the killing was deemed to be paranoid schizophrenia and he was "substantially impaired" in his ability to understand the nature of his actions.

Sentencing, Mr Justice Griffiths said: "There is a high risk you will commit further serious offences if you are not detained.

“Detention is necessary to protect the public from serious harm. It’s not possible to say how long that will be so.”

He is to be detained in a high-security hospital subject to a hospital order under section 37 of the Mental Health Act 1983.

Special restrictions set out in section 41 to remove the limit of time were also applied in Deeley’s case.
