Man who murdered a Norwich grandmother in Tenerife was released from a UK mental health clinic months before killing
The man who murdered a Norwich grandmother was released from a mental health hospital in the UK.
Deyan Deyanov, who decapitated Jennifer Mills-Westley, was visiting relatives in Britain when he was admitted to the Glan Clwyd Hospital's Ablett Psychiatric Unit in North Wales.
The Bulgarian was receiving treatment after relatives told authorities about his drug-taking problem and deteriorating behaviour.
He was later released in October last year after being monitored constantly.
Ex-girlfriends of the Bulgarian have spoke of how they feared for their lives, whilst a security guard has said he had his face smashed in by Deyanov.
Labour MP Steve McCabe told the Sun newspaper: 'There must be an urgent inquiry to find how someone in psychiatric care can be released, travel abroad and carry out such a crime.'
One of his Deyanov's ex-girlfriends, 22-year-old Rachel Sharpe, from Canterbury, said: 'He told me he wanted to kill someone to see what it would be like, to cut someone up.
