Man guilty of murdering MP Jo Cox

Man guilty of murdering MP Jo Cox

An Old Bailey jury has taken just over an hour to find Thomas Mair guilty of the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

The 53-year-old shot and stabbed to death the mother-of-two in Birstall, West Yorkshire, on 16 June, a week before the EU referendum vote.

Mr Mair, who denied murder, chose not to give any evidence in his defence.

Mrs Cox's husband, Brendan, her parents, Jean and Gordon Leadbeater, and her sister, Kim, were all in court for the verdict.
