UK – A former RAF serviceman who smothered his 76-year-old mother to death with a pillow has been jailed for four years and eight months.
David Thomson, 49, acted as a carer to mother Elizabeth who regularly mocked him, the High Court in Edinburgh heard.
Thomson waited until she went to bed before holding a pillow over her face, struggling with her until she died. He had made a suicide bid weeks before the killing, but his mother told him he was a failure who could not even kill himself properly.
