A PRISONER has admitted disembowelling and murdering a child rapist during a brutal attack at a top-security jail.
Mitchell Harrison, 23, was serving an indefinite sentence at Frankland Prison, Durham, for raping a 13-year-old girl when he was brutally killed last October. He was attacked with makeshift weapons, thought to be razor blades melted into toothbrush handles.
His bloodied body was found in his cell by warders.
Speaking shortly after his murder, a source close to the prison said: To all intents and purposes he had been disembowelled. There was blood everywhere.
Michael Parr, 32, pleaded guilty to murder during a brief hearing at Newcastle Crown Court yesterday via videolink from prison.
Nathan Mann, 23, is also charged with Harrisons murder but he did not appear before the court. Harrison, from Wolverhampton, was jailed in January 2010 for raping a girl in Cumbria.
