Murderer who stabbed “loveable” dad-of-two to death fighting for life after being knifed in brutal prison attack.

A knife murderer who stabbed his neighbour to death is fighting for his life after being attacked in prison.

John Blake, who is serving a life sentence for killing dad-of-two Sean Stark, was assaulted in Glenochil prison last weekend.

Blake, 30, is said to be in a serious condition after suffering a punctured lung.

Sean, 25, died after he tried to stop his neighbour in Fife, being beaten up.

He was left bleeding to death outside his home in Main Street on May 31, 2009.

Blake had only been out of prison for six weeks when he murdered the devoted family man, the reports.

Last night, a prison source said: “Blake was stabbed in his cell on Sunday. He’s in a bad way. He’s got a punctured lung.

“It’s ironic he’s fighting for his life after being stabbed considering he is in prison for stabbing an innocent man to death.”

The source said police are investigating the incident but nobody in prison is talking about it.

He added: “Someone clearly wants Blake dead.”

A spokesman for the Scottish Prison Service said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”

Blake, a dad-of-one, has been in and out of prison most of his life.

Before he murdered Sean, he had convictions for assault to injury, other assaults and possessing a knife.

Sean – described in court as a “loyal and lovable family man” – was living with his childhood sweetheart Melanie Stewart and their two daughters, aged three and one.

He had stepped in to to stop his neighbour being beaten up when Blake turned on him and stabbed him six times including in his lungs and heart.

After he was found guilty of murder at the High Court in Aberdeen, Blake was told he must serve at least 17 years before applying for parole.

Police said: “We are investigating following an attempted murder within HMP Glenochil on December 10 which resulted in a 30-year-old man sustaining serious injuries.

“He was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he continues to be treated. However, he is in a stable condition.

“Officers are currently following a positive line of inquiry.”

The High Court in Mukono District in central Uganda found her guilty of murdering her husband Eric Kiddu after hitting him several times on the head with an iron bar.

After the murder Nakku attempted to make the killing appear to be the result of an attack by unknown people by screaming and running to neighbours to ask for help. His body was later found in a pool of blood with a panga and brick besides it, the Daily Monitor reported.

The couple had quarrelled shortly before the bloody encounter with a misunderstanding leading to Kiddu’s death.

Nakku was advised by the judge to appeal the sentence if she was dissatisfied as relatives of both husband and wife argued outside the court, trading accusations.
