Murder: Hear killer’s dramatic call to police

Police have released audio from the dramatic moment when John York called 999 and admitted killing 60-year-old Glenn Clary.

Mr Clary, of Garden Field Close, Irthlingborough, was discovered dead at a house in Crouch Road, Irthlingborough, on August 26 last year.

Three people have been convicted of his murder, including York, and have been given life sentences at Northampton crown Court.

Mr Clary was beaten to death in a prolonged attack by John York, Gary Monaghan, and Jennifer Ryan after an argument following a drinking session between the four.

York, 23, of Crouch Road, was given a minimum term of 18 years, with concurrent sentences of three years for a robbery carried out a week before Mr Clary’s murder, two years for false imprisonment and 18 months for assault.

Ryan, 46, of Baker Street, Irthlingborough, must serve a minimum of 18 years as well as 30 months for a separate count of unlawful wounding.

Monaghan, 65, also of Crouch Road, will serve a minimum of 16 years, imposed by Judge Rupert Mayo because of his advanced age.

In the video you can hear the 999 call as York admits to the killing. The video also includes a picture of murder victim Mr Clary.

Mr Clary’s family have also released a statement following the trial.

The statement said the family would take ‘some solace’ after justice had been administered to the killers.

The statement said: “It is with great regret that we are at this court today, following the murder of my brother Glenn.

“I do, however, take some solace in knowing that some justice has been administered to his killers.

“I would like to thank all the people who supported me through these traumatic seven months in particular DC Julia Mcinally and Carla Jordan from Victim Support, together with the investigation team all of whom worked tirelessly to bring these killers to justice.”
