Murderer Who Killed a Mom of 2 Reportedly Demands the Right to Conceive a Child While in Jail
Aaron Newman who murdered a mother-of-two is requesting IVF treatment so he can become a father from behind bars.
The 28-year-old hitman is serving a 31-year prison sentence for killing 30-year-old Hayley Pointon six years ago, as reported by Metro.
Hitman who killed a mum demands IVF so that he can become a father in prison. He is already costing the tax payer £££ per week for his stay. Not sure his genes should be carried on. He can have conjugal visits anyway. Why ivf a lone partner of a murderer? https://t.co/PaUAkqPgVu— Kirsten (@Kirsten2002) April 8, 2019
"He lost his rights to fatherhood when he murdered my daughter. It’s ridiculous. He needs to be castrated."
Newman now expressed his desire to become a father in prison, demanding IVF treatment so he can get his girlfriend pregnant.
He wrote in prison magazine Inside Time: "As a lifer in the dispersal system who has no children, I should have the right to conceive a child by natural or even artificial means. If the prison system was to say there were going to trial private family visits for well-behaved prisoners, it would be twice a year and would be 30 minutes."
He added: "It must be you wife/partner and you have to be IEP/warning free/adjudication free/enhanced for the period leading up to it or you would lose the privilege. The levels of violence in custody rate would be more than halved."
"I personally would only leave my cell for gym, work and food and would bang up early daily not to lose the (conjugal) visits. I’m sure many other would agree with me in my situation. We all need to get together and fight for the right to have conjugal visits," Newman concluded.
However, Pointon's mother, Kerry, was outraged and said that he should be castrated.
"Why should he have kids when Hayley’s are being brought up without their mum?" she told Mirror’s Sunday People. "He lost his rights to fatherhood when he murdered my daughter. It’s ridiculous. He needs to be castrated."
In February 2013, Newman was hired as a hitman to kill Pointon’s boyfriend, Nigel Barwell, in Hinckley, Leicestershire, Metro reported.
However, he and his accomplice Aaron Power shot Pointon in the chest when Barwell came into the house. She passed away at the scene.
Although Newman and Power blamed one another for the murder, they were found liable and imprisoned for life with at least 31 years.
