A mother and son who murdered a runner after pursuing a vendetta against him over his use of a footpath that crossed their land have been handed life jail terms.

Gary Dean’s body was found in a ditch in woods near his home after he had been shot in the back with an air rifle and repeatedly beaten with rocks and branches.

The 48-year-old was killed by Scott Dawson, 41, and Carol Dawson, 72, after regularly using land belonging to them for running and other activities, prompting a long-running and bitter feud, prosecutors said.
