Sophie Moss Age
Sam Pybus, 32, waited for his wife to go to bed before texting his secret lover, Sophie Moss, 33, to arrange a meeting.
He went to her home where they had s*x, but during intercourse he strangled her for up to several minutes until she was dead.
He did not bother to provide first aid, but sat in his car for 15 minutes and wondered what to do, it said.
He eventually drove to a police station and told staff that he believed he had strangled her.
The officers ran to her home and found her unresponsive. She was taken to the hospital, but the doctors couldn’t save her.
Pybus was jailed for four years and eight months yesterday but will be released halfway through his term.
He had been charged with murder but was allowed to plead guilty of minor manslaughter as there was no evidence that he intended to cause her serious harm.
She has agreed in the past that he put “light pressure” on her neck during s*x, according to the court.
But activists still called the verdict too lenient – and welcomed the closure of the “rough s*x” loophole that has allowed offenders to receive reduced sentences by claiming that their victims consented to attacks.
Teresa Parker of Women’s Aid said, “This low rate shows exactly why it was so important to ban what is known as the ‘rough s*x’ defense.
“This defense was routinely used by men who killed women in order to obtain a lesser sentence.
“In 45 percent of the cases where a man kills a woman during a s*xual act and claims she gave her consent, the ‘consent for s*xual satisfaction’ defense is effective and leads to lower penalties.
“Four Years and Eight Months for a Woman’s Life sends a chilling message to women who live with violent and abusive partners.
“With an average of three women killed by current or former partners every two weeks in the UK, this latest legislative change couldn’t be more important and this has to be one of the last cases we see this way.”
Pybus had been in a relationship with Sophie behind his wife’s back for three years.
They met for s*x about six times a year, and in the wee hours of February 7th of that year he arranged to see her in Darlington, County Durham after drinking 24 bottles of Amstel lager.
Prosecutor Richard Wright QC told the Teesside Crown Court, “His wife went to bed around 10:30 am and the defendant stayed downstairs.
“He contacted Sophie Moss to drive to her apartment to arrange s*xual intercourse with her.
“At 4:47 am in the early hours of the morning, the defendant entered the Darlington Police Station after driving his car there from Sophie’s apartment.
“He told them he thought he strangled her, but wasn’t sure she was breathing.
“The officers were immediately dispatched and visited the apartment. They found Sophie naked and completely unresponsive.
“All efforts on site and in the hospital were unsuccessful and Sophie was pronounced dead in the hospital.”
Pybus, of Middleton St. George, Darlington, told police he couldn’t remember what happened, but said his hands were sore, suggesting that he had strangled them.
Sophie’s brother James said in a statement of the aftermath of the sacrifice: “She was happy, lively, and talented.
“Somehow we have to come to terms with never knowing the full set of circumstances.
“We will never be able to get rid of the belief that whatever the nature of their relationship and role in it, she was a victim, was exploited and exploited, and faced an entirely avoidable and infinitely tragic end.”
Sophie lived alone at the time of her death. Daniel Parkington, the father of their two sons, ages five and six, said: “You have been sentenced to life imprisonment.
“It’s not fair and never will be.”
He added that one of them had asked “to see his mom from heaven”.
Sam Green mitigated that Pybus had “the emotions of self-disgust and the difficulty living with it that he had done.
Judge Paul Watson QC said no verdict could make up for the loss her family suffered.
He said to Pybus, “This was a case where at the time you were voluntarily drunk, unable to judge the situation and maybe stopped when it was obvious that you had gone too far.”
“It was obviously dangerous behavior, be it consensual or not.
“Dangerous in the sense that any compression of the neck poses an obvious risk of brain damage or worse, as this case tragically shows.”
