The court heard that the sustained knife attack ended with Barry slicing off his victim’s penis, leaving his mutilated body in a bedroom.

The 56-year-old admitted killing Mr Ahmad, but only pleaded guilty to manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility.

John Penny, from the CPS, said jurors disregarded grounds for Barry’s diminished responsibility over the “horrendous” attack, adding: “They made that decision on the basis of expert psychiatric advice along with the Crown’s evidence of Barry’s long-standing animosity towards Mr Ahmed, which was based in large part on Barry’s racist views.” Detective Chief Inspector Richard Ocone, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: “Jeffrey Barry may have a history of serious mental illness but at the time he attacked Kamil he knew exactly what he was doing.

“He deliberately armed himself with a knife and purposefully went to Kamil’s flat and brutally attacked him.
