Sex game killer caged after strangling lover to death in horror bedroom accident


Sam Pybus, 31, of Water View, Middleton St. George, Darlington accidentally choked his lover, Sophie Moss, 33, to death earlier this year.

Pybus has now been jailed for four years and eight months after admitting to manslaughter.

Ms Moss was found unconscious at home in Darlington on February 7.

She later died in hospital following the incident.

Pybus, appeared at Teesside Crown Court today.

Ms Moss’ brother, James, read a statement where he expressed the impact his sister’s death would have on him and his family, Poppy Kennedy from Teesside Live reports.

He said: “To put into words the impact the tragic death of my beloved sister Sophie has had on me and my family seems impossible.

“My sadness is too overwhelming.

“More than anything I miss her and I miss her love – every day with my entire being.

“I would give anything to hear her laugh again.”

He added: “Somehow we must come to terms with never knowing the full circumstances.

Pybus had told detectives he would at times apply pressure to Ms Moss’ neck.

Daniel Pilkington, the father of Ms Moss’ two boys, aged five and six, said: “They have been given a life sentence.

“It’s not fair and it never will be.”

Judge Paul Watson QC said: “Sophie was someone who suffered from her own disabilities and her own vulnerabilities.

“I also find that this was a case in which at the time you were voluntarily intoxicated – unable to judge the situation and perhaps to have stopped when it was obvious that you had gone too far.

“Sophie was a much-loved mother, daughter and sister and her death has devastated her entire family. The sense of loss of Sophie has been, to use her brother James’ own words for the whole family, immeasurable.”
