Son of woman who was killed jailed for manslaughter, Walk to School Week campaign

Written by on 21 May 2024

The son of a woman who was killed in her home in Madeley has been jailed for more than seven years for unlawful manslaughter.  Finn Henry, 21, attacked his mother, 54 year old Suzanne Henry, on 1 May last year inside their family home on Newcastle Road.

Police were called after people saw Finn acting suspiciously in the street. A neighbour, who knew the family, later found Suzanne badly injured inside her home and called 999. She had suffered significant trauma to her face and head.

Suzanne was rushed to hospital by paramedics but tragically died as a result of her injuries two days later.

Finn presented himself to officers at the scene shortly after the attack and was arrested. He was deemed not medically fit for interview until the following day and

was subsequently charged with murder.

On 6 November, Finn appeared at Stafford Crown Court and pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. He was remanded before being sentenced on Monday to seven-years-and-four-months behind bars, with an extended sentence period of four years, at Northampton Crown Court.

Staffordshire County Council is encouraging pupils from across the region to get involved in the annual Walk to School Week campaign this week.

Walk to School Week aims to raise awareness of the many benefits of walking to school, including improved physical health, reduced traffic congestion, and decreased carbon emissions.

By encouraging more students to walk to school, the county council hopes to promote lifelong habits that encourage more well-being and sustainable travel.

The county council currently has over 100 schools signed up to the campaign, to inspire more pupils and parents to make smarter and healthier choices when travelling to and from school.
