Craig Preston murder case was 'complex and difficult' says chief officer

Det Chf Insp Steve Handley said: “This has been a complex and difficult murder investigation into a brutal and sustained assault on Mr Preston in summer last year.

“Bashir, Mason and the teenage boys planned together to harm Mr Preston, which we were able to demonstrate through a combination of CCTV enquiries, forensics and telecoms work.

“We completed extensive telephone forensics work on the mobiles of all defendants and rather horrifyingly, were able to retrieve an image of Mr Preston’s beaten body in the boot of a car on Bashir’s phone as well as many texts between all defendants planning their attack.

“This overwhelming evidence was placed before a jury who have reached their verdict today.”

Pair murdered man in 'grubby love triangle'

Mohammed Shiraz Bashir, 42, and his partner Leonie Marie Mason, 24, both of Holme Park Court, were found guilty today of murdering Craig Preston, Mason’s ex.

Three teenage boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were cleared of Mr Preston’s murder but were found guilty of manslaughter following a 12-week trial at Sheffield Crown Court.

Mr Preston’s body was found on moors off the Woodhead Pass, Derbyshire, on August 22.

A postmortem revealed he had died from head injuries.

During the trial prosecutor Dafydd Enoch QC said: “She (Mason) had been for six or seven years the girlfriend and partner of the deceased.

“To call it a love triangle would be to give the situation a sort of credibility it doesn’t deserve. It was very grubby and unpleasant.

“Bashir’s hate for Preston greatly grew and his desire to have him out of the way came to be shared by Miss Mason.”
