Kyle Walley, 19, died on the kitchen floor of his home in Ruabon, Wrexham. Video was taken of the attack and posted on social media platform Snapchat, the jury at Mold Crown Court was told. Some stepped into the witness box to talk of the loving couple, who had been together for almost four decades, and the struggles they had with their mentally ill son Lee. Mark Harley Jones, also 19, of Chester Road, Wrexham, has admitted killing Mr Walley but denies murder. Josiah Francis, 20, from Birmingham , and two 16-year-old boys – who cannot be named for legal reasons – will appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court on Monday. Mr Walley had expected to watch the football final between England and Italy on 11 July 2021 with the man he considered to be his friend, Mr Jones, the trial was told. Sitting in the dock wearing designer sweatshirts, with price tags of up to £800, the jobless loner, who has not worked since 2004, shouted out and interrupted when he did not agree with the witnesses. Mr Jones arrived at Mr Walley's flat at around lunchtime, but by 16:47 BST, before the game had even started, Mr Walley was dead after being stabbed by the defendant.
The jury was shown videos from Mr Jones' Snapchat stories, where he is shown drinking cider and Bourbon at Mr Walley's flat. He claimed they left the cupboards bare and took £120 a week from him as board money.

Teenages denies Wrexham murder In other footage he made stabbing motions towards Mr Walley while holding a knife when his back was turned. The court was also shown videos, which were posted online, including one of Mr Walley lying dead while the defendant kicked him, and another where the defendant showed his bloodstained hands to the camera and said he had "stabbed up" Mr Walley and was "going to do time". Ironically, he said his dad was “a psycho. John Philpotts, prosecuting, told the jury that at the time of the knife attack, Mr Walley was on the phone to a friend, Attia Jones, who heard an argument between the two men and Mr Walley shouting "put the knife down". He is taken from us cruelly and our hearts are broken. She then heard Mr Jones shouting "it's my ADHD", followed by screaming. When I was defending myself he was severing my hands to bits.
An acquaintance of Mr Jones, Harry Meadows, had seen the clips on Snapchat in the hours leading up to his death. It was not the first time, the jury was told, Mr Meadows had seen videos showing Mr Jones with knives, and he had also threatened to kill him in the past. "I thought, I'm going to have to take control.’ Get in touch with our news team by emailing us at. Mr Philpotts said the prosecution's case was that those clips showed Mr Jones was actively considering stabbing Mr Walley. Following Mr Walley's death, videos were found on his phone which had been sent by Mr Jones the day before his death, saying "I'm going to kill you" and" I'm going to stab your ear off tomorrow". His face remained expressionless as he told the jury how he ‘hacked’ his parents to death. The prosecution says Mr Jones could not have made his intentions much clearer.
'Obsession with knives' The court heard that another friend of Mr Walley's, Morgan Bull, got a message from him on the afternoon of 11 July saying Mr Jones was behaving in a threatening manner with a screwdriver and knife. Home Office pathologist, Dr Jonathan Metcalfe, said injuries to Tipping’s hands, which were treated in hospital following his arrest, did not bear the hallmarks of ‘defensive injuries’. He and another friend called the police, and later an ambulance, but Mr Walley could not be saved. Three young women also saw the Snapchat stories posted by Mr Jones. Dr Alison Armour said many of the 131 knife wounds - including ‘unusual’ injuries to Anthony Tipping’s eyes and genitals, were caused after death. One of them, Chloe Thornhill, called the police. Footage of videos deleted from Snapchat were later recovered by police from the phone of another of the women, Charlie Davies. He said after stabbing her once 'I may as well go through with it now and get it over and done with' and stabbed his mum 153 times.
The jury was also told that a young man, Marley Milburn, saw an arm striking a window of the flat holding a kitchen knife and heard shouting. Later he saw a blood-stained Mr Jones leaving the flat, pushing a bike. Tricia’s sister Catherine Riding said despite Tipping’s rude and demanding nature, she had never seen either parent discipline him. He told Mr Millburn he had "stabbed him" and he needed to "run away". Mr Jones was arrested by police near Wrexham and taken to Maelor hospital to be treated for a cut on his hand.” Lee was Tony and Tricia's only child, and lived with them at the semi-detached home in Cann Bridge Street, Higher Walton, throughout his life. In hospital, Mr Jones said his "mate" had tried to sleep with a 13-year-old girl, and that was why he had done it.
He also said Mr Walley had stabbed him with a screwdriver after an argument. Tipping’s cousin, Louise Hodgkinson, said as a child Lee did not play out in the village with the other children and was always a bit of a loner. Investigating hMr Jones' internet search history after his arrest, Mr Philpotts said it showed an obsession with knives. Gordon Cole QC, defending Mr Jones, told the jury his client accepted responsibility for Mr Walley's death. Between the ages of 17 and 22, Tipping spent two periods of time in a psychiatric hospital and was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, OCD and anxiety. 'Deteriorating mental health' But he said Mr Jones, who has ADHD, PTSD and an emotionally unstable personality disorder, denies murder. He told the jury that in the weeks leading up to the incident, Mr Jones' mental health had been deteriorating and he had been hearing "unpleasant voices" and "unpleasant mental images", with voices telling him to harm himself and others. Tipping’s behaviour in the home was described as obsessive and controlling.
He added that though his memories of 11 July are incomplete, he knows they drank alcohol and that they argued, and there was a time when Mr Walley became aggressive. Mr Cole said Mr Jones will say it is was Mr Walley who picked up the knife and that Mr Jones grabbed it and struggled, injuring his hand. He followed his parents around the house to the extent Tony could not go for a cigarette or use the bathroom without his son following him. He added they would be asking the jury to consider diminished responsibility as a partial defence, as well as loss of control. The trial continues. He needed attention all the time". .
