Swindon man found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 17:29

A man has today been found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence following the death of a man at an address in Swindon.

Kevin Lewis Adams, aged 54, of Exmouth Street, was found guilty by a jury sitting at Bristol Crown Court.

He had previously pleaded guilty to three counts of possession of class A, B and C drugs.

On Saturday 13 June 2015, paramedics and police were called to Adams’ home address in Exmouth Street, Kingshill, Swindon, following the sudden death of 36-year-old Kim Dohoon, originally from South Korea but living in Slough at the time of the incident.

Adams was arrested in connection with the death and a post mortem was carried out which revealed Kim died as a result of a partially obstructed airway and mixed drug intoxication.

Adams was later charged with manslaughter by gross negligence.

Detective Chief Inspector Jeremy Carter, of the Brunel Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “This was a tragic and needless death of a man described by his work colleagues as an industrious and ambitious person who clearly had a bright future ahead of him.

“Kim had spent the evening at Adams' home address in Swindon where the pair had taken a cocktail of drugs before engaging in sexual activity involving restraint and bondage activity.

“Adams had a responsibility to look after Kim’s welfare and he failed to do so with tragic consequences. The restrains which had been placed on Kim, together with the mixture of drugs both men had taken that evening, proved fatal.

"It was Adams' failure and his care towards Kim which ultimately led to his untimely death. Today the court has recognised this failure and he will now be sentenced having been found guilty of manslaughter with gross negligence.

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Kim.”

Adams will be sentenced at Bristol Crown Court on Monday.

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 12:45

Wiltshire Police is appealing for information after a gang of thieves targeted two shops in the Swindon area.

Around 4pm on Sunday 4 June 2017 at the One Stop in Purton a man entered the store and distracted a shop worker by asking about an item while two women followed him in and took a number of tins of baby milk powder - concealing it in their lined skirts.

All three then left the shop without making any effort to pay for the goods and drove off in a silver VW estate with an "04" number plate.

Approximately twenty minutes later, around 4.20pm, the same thing happened at the Co-op on Highdown Way, Swindon with the same items being taken.

CCTV images of three people officers would like to speak to in relation to these incidents are attached.
