FACTFILE


Monday 11th June 2007, PC Jon Henry was attending to a 999 call from two members of the public after a man, said by witnesses to be a window cleaner, was attacked with a knife in Luton town centre.
The police constable attended in a marked police car and was with a number of other officers when he was wounded. Two other people were also attacked, one quite seriously.
Police used a baton round and Taser electric stun gun to restrain the knifeman.

Jon Henry was taken by ambulance to the Luton & unstable hospital but dies shortly after from his injuries.

 

March 2009, At Luton Crown Court, Obih, of Winsdon Road, Luton, denied murdering PC Jon Henry in Luton town centre, but admitted killing him on grounds of diminished responsibility. He also denied the attempted murder of Mr Knight and another window cleaner.

The court heard that Obih, known as Tennyson, stabbed Mr Knight's colleague in the back and stabbed PC Jon Henry twice in the chest.


Obih faced separate charges of aggravated burglary and assault, which relate to an incident earlier that day.

 

Obih was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2005, the defence claimed this is why he was claiming diminished responsibility. The prosecution claimed his medication was working well, and on the day of the crime he was of sound mind.

Tuesday 24th March 2009. Obih is found guilty at Luton Crown Court.

Sentenced to life, with a minimum of 25 years, he was also found guilty of attempted murder of the other window cleaner.

The judge said "You are at present a highly dangerous man and there is a very serious risk to the public of your committing further specified offences of violence if released. Indeed, it is possible that it will never be safe to release you at all."
