Bev, pictured with her grandad Pliny and sister, claims he was acting in ‘self-defence’ when he killed the man in 1970

Bev, 63, was just 13 when her 65-year-old grandad killed illegal immigrant Paul Suchar after a row over money.

She explained: “The two men must have started rowing and then Paul Suchar attacked Grandad and beat him really badly.

“His shin was totally kicked in and he thought he was going to be killed. Grandad hit back and was really fighting for his life.

“In the mill workshop there was a hammer lying on a bench and in desperation Grandad pick it up and hit Paul Suchar across the head with it.

“The younger man fell to the floor and when after a few seconds he didn’t come round, Grandad realised he’d killed him.”

Pliny confessed to the killing two weeks after the murder and swiftly handed himself into cops.

Writing in her 2010 autobiography, Unbroken, she said: “I knew people were talking about my grandad, and some girls even avoided me. One girl told me I couldn’t go round to her house for tea any more as had been planned.

Pliny died behind bars from septicaemia just a year after his conviction.

Bev says she threw herself “whole heartedly” into her “rebellious teenage years” after the incident.
