A HARLOW man who was jailed after stabbing two women with a carving fork has died in prison while serving his sentence in Norfolk reports the East Anglian Daily Press.

He was serving his 10-year sentence in HMP Wayland, Norfolk, where he died on December 7.

Alan Giles, who was then 67, of Woodleys, Harlow, was jailed for 10 years for two counts of causing grievous bodily harm.

Giles was jailed at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday 29 May 2020, after he previously pleaded guilty to the offences.

An inquest into his death opened at Norfolk Coroner’s Court this week and heard he was found unresponsive in his cell.

Area coroner Samantha Goward told the court that CPR was performed on him after the discovery, but that he died at the scene.

The medical cause of the 71-year-old’s death was given as citalopram toxicity – a form of antidepressant.

Mrs Goward added that a report into his death was being prepared by the prison and probation service ahead of a full inquest.
