Going off the report I'd be amazed if the defendent wasn't found guilty of attempted murder.
Prosecutor Michael Roques said the defendant had "sent a number of messages threatening to kill" Mr Fordred following a row involving a former partner.
Figure of speech, I'm sure, intended to scare but not to be actually carried out. It's clear to me that the Defendent had a moment of madness, fuelled by his naivite and an excess of drink and drugs, and has already pleaded guilty to GBH at the earliest opportunity.
Hope you're right though...
