Christopher Varian, a restaurant manager at a luxury hotel in southeast England, went out for a smoke break after overseeing a wedding. One of the waiters came outside, too, and assaulted him with a cheese knife, reports NewsCore, beheading him with it in front of horrified witnesses. A captain of the local police said it was one of the most violent crimes that he'd handled in his entire career. Some 18 months later, the waiter has received what could be a life sentence.
Jonathan Limani, 34, first claimed that he was innocent, but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter with diminished responsibility. He has a history of paranoid schizophrenia.
