The sentencing of Luke Mackrory, who 'viciously' assaulted a woman in her fifties with a meat cleaver, will take place tomorrow (Thursday, June 13).

He has been convicted of GBH and found not guilty of attempted murder, and will be sentenced at Reading Crown Court.

The 27-year-old, of Lockside Court, Aldermaston was convicted of one count of GBH after being found guilty by a majority jury following a trial at Reading Crown Court, which lasted eight days and concluded on May 2.

In October, Mackrory viciously assaulted the woman, leaving her with injuries to her head, including lacerations and a fracture to her skull.

She also received bruising to her body.

The victim received extensive hospital treatment and continues to recover from her substantial injuries.
