18 year old Connor Huntley (pictured above) was found by medics with a hammer embedded in his skull after his homophobic flat mate, 21 year old Joseph Williams attacked him with a hammer as he slept in their 2-bedroom apartment in Kent, UK. After the attack, Williams called 999 and confessed to the horrific attack.

Williams was arrested, charged with attempted murder and has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.
According to prosecutors, Williams was a homophobic who hated that his roommate was gay and a cross dresser and told friends that he would ‘end up hurting’ his roommate if they continue to live together. And on May 28th 2013, he carried out the attack. At the time, he was suffering from depression and was developing schizophrenia.
Williams will be locked up in a mental health hospital until he is fit to go to prison
