“An elderly dog breeder is likely to die in jail after he was sentenced to at least 25 years for shooting his partner and her daughter dead at his puppy farm.”
“Four years ago we showed how he was breeding scores of dogs at his premises and selling puppies in poor condition to unsuspecting members of the public. Many puppies fell ill within days of leaving the kennels and some died. After our first programme in 2004 John Lowe’s licence to breed puppies was taken away by the local council. A year later he appeared before Guildford Magistrates and pleaded guilty to a number of offences including breeding dogs without a licence. He was disqualified from keeping a breeding establishment for two years.”
John Lowe, 82, was found guilty of murdering 66-year-old Christine Lee and her daughter Lucy Lee, 40, with his shotgun at his home near Farnham, Surrey, in February. Sentencing Lowe at Guildford Crown Court, Mr Justice Singh praised the “extraordinary courage” of Lucy Lee after she returned to face her killer following a frantic 999 call on the day of the shootings. Lowe, flanked by three security officers, winked at his supporters in the public gallery as he was led from the dock.
Lucy was able to use her mobile phone to make a frantic and desperate call to the emergency services on 999 but was then killed.
