ANOTHER psychiatrist told jurors today he believed Will Blencowe would have known what he was doing was wrong when he stabbed Connor Tremble 15 times.

Blencowe, 21, admits stabbing his  17-year-old love rival at his Oxford flat in February, but denies he planned it and murdered him.

Defence witness Dr Michael Orr told the Oxford Crown Court jury this morning that Blencowe, of Oxford Road in Banbury, had told him he felt like “someone had stolen his body” during the attack that left Connor fatally injured.

Giving a second opinion this afternoon, forensic psychologist Dr Sukhjeet Lally – a prosecution witness – agreed Blencowe had mental health problems.

But when asked by prosecutor Richard Barton if they meant Blencowe would not know what he was doing, he said: “Not at all.”

The trial continues.
