Murder suspect attacked
Mar 4 2009 by Ben Rossington, Liverpool Echo

A MURDER suspect needed hospital treatment after being attacked on his first day in prison.

Gary Finlay, 46, was slashed across the face with a make-shift razor by one inmate and beaten by two others during his first 24 hours in Walton prison.

On Friday, Finlay was remanded into custody by Wirral magistrates after being charged with the murder of soldier Graham McKenna and the attempted murder of Mr McKenn’a teenage son Michael.

He was arrested on Wednesday when he handed himself in to police after living rough in Liverpool for six weeks.

Later that day, Finlay was booked into the First Night Centre at Walton prison – where new inmates are taken to acclimatise to prison life – before being moved to the remand wing the following day.

He was attacked at around 3.30pm on Saturday.

Two men punched Finlay in the face and body before another cut him.

Finlay’s injuries were so serious he was taken to hospital.

He returned to Walton in the early hours of Sunday.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “An incident took place at HMP Liverpool at 3.30pm on Saturday 28 February in which a prisoner was assaulted.

“The prisoner sustained cuts and bruising. He was taken to an outside hospital and returned to HMP Liverpool in the early hours of March 1.”

Mr McKenna, 45, was killed on Saturday, January 10, as he and son Michael, 14, went to catch the Soccer Bus to Goodison Park from Upton Road, Claughton, Wirral.

Mr McKenna was stabbed and staggered around the corner before collapsing in Speedwell Road. He died in Arrowe Park hospital.

Michael was knifed nine times but survived.

Dad-of-two Mr McKenna, who served with the Cheshire Regiment for 22 years before joining the local Territorial Army, was laid to rest after a full military funeral on Monday.

Finlay is due to appear before a Liverpool Crown Court judge later this month.

Deserves everything he gets yea, but wishing death upon someone???

That makes you as bad as he is in my book.

Just be thankful that hes gonna have a hard time in prison however long he spends in there.

It's no doubt that Finlay will have a hard time in prison and it is to be expected.

i'm going to throw a lemon into the circus ring - like i always try to do.
some may say that this man is not human.
some may say that this man is an animal.
some may say he deserves to die.
some now live with his actions on their hands by relation to him.
some still love him even if he has selfishly slaughtered another man and attempted to murder a young man.
some might say that he still deserves a chance - that he may one day regret his actions.
some may say he can still be forgiven (though this will take extreme strength of character).

Please think before you head for the Lowest Common Denominator.

I don't condone this man's actions (before you jump to this conclusion).

This man carried out a premeditated attack on two innocent people that has left a decent family with a huge hole in there lives.I doubt they will ever forgive him or give him a second chance.There is more to this incident than what is in the public eye .I am sorry if any one thinks badly of me butI have lost a good friend and Finlay deserves to hang for what he has done and this certainly doesnt make me as bad as a cold blooded murderer RIP MAC
