A BRITISH man strangled his own mother before going on the run in Spain and murdering a mother-of-three in Barcelona.

Sean Heiss, 30, was found guilty of murdering his mother Margaret Sheehy, 58, in Kingston before taking her credit cards and fleeing to Spain on the Eurostar.

In Barcelona, Heiss stabbed a mother-of-three, Clementina Liscano, to death when she found him sleeping in the street near a cash point.

Heiss was sentenced to 22 years in prison after extradition to the UK but pleaded diminished responsibility, having previously suffered from psychotic illness.

The 30-year-old from Surbiton  will be sentenced tomorrow before being returned to Spain to serve the sentence.
