Sex savage who stabbed young mum in BDSM session freed after three years in jail

A man who killed a young mum after holding a knife to her neck during a rough sex session has been released after serving only half his sentence.

Jason Gaskell killed Laura Huteson, 21, just hours after meeting her during cocaine-fuelled sadomasochistic sex at his home in Hull in 2018.

Gaskell held a knife to the young woman's throat and pierced her artery, reports HullLive.

The 24-year-old pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to six years at Sheffield Crown Court.

But he was released in April, just under halfway through his sentence, leaving her family devastated.

"We feel like Laura has been completely let down by the system. She deserves justice and the courts failed her and us," her cousin, Holly Hayward.

"Gaskell should have been stopped sooner. How can he be now out, living his life when she's gone?"

Her boyfriend of five years, Benjamin Guy, says life has been "torture" since Laura's death and that his heart breaks every day knowing her son will grow up without his "beautiful" mum.

Laura's family described her as 'such a loving and lovely person despite her difficulties.'

The court heard that the young mum met Gaskell and went back to his home where they drank and took cocaine into the early hours of the morning.

During sex, the defendant had pressed a knife to her neck severing her artery – an injury which took "mild to moderate force" to inflict.

Gaskell claimed to have only realised he had stabbed the victim when she "gave a jerking motion" and made a distressed 999 call saying she had fell on the knife.

He sobbed when he appeared in court in August 2018 as he was sentenced after pleading guilty to manslaughter instead.

Sentencing, Judge Jeremy Richardson QC told Gaskell: "In simple terms, you unlawfully killed the woman with whom you were having sexual intercourse by stabbing her through the neck during bizarre and violent, sadomasochistic sexual activity.

"You deliberately held the knife to her throat during sexual intercourse. Whilst performing the sexual act that knife went through her neck, severing a vital artery and vein.

"You did not intend that to happen but the danger of stabbing the victim was obvious."

The Ministry of Justice declined to comment on the case to HullLive.

Daily Star has approached it for a response.
