On September 23, 2006, Clarke saw another man go into Boyce’s house. He then climbed up to a window, peeped into the bedroom and saw Boyce and the man engaged in foreplay.

He forcibly entered the house and attacked Boyce while her male friend ran and left her. He then used a piece of the bed to inflict several head injuries.

He left her unconscious.

Boyce died from her injuries on October 4.

Clarke was sentenced to 12 years for manslaughter. He unsuccessfully appealed the length of his sentence.
