Axe attacker set to be sentenced

A punter who admitted attacking a man with an axe and knife in an alcohol-fuelled attack inside a pub will find out his fate on Friday.

Robert Halligan will be sentenced at Reading Crown Court for three charges, including unlawfully wounding Decimus McNulty with an axe on April 27.

Halligan, of Clewer Hill Road, Windsor, also pleaded guilty on June 29 to two counts of possession of dangerous weapons in the attack at The Sebastopol pub in Clewer Hill Road, which is opposite his home.

The 49-year-old had been drinking in the pub, but was kicked out after turning up with an axe before returning to attack McNulty.

He has been remanded in custody in Bullingdon Prison.
