|By news.com.au- Luke Costin|
A violent NSW prisoner who said he was going to “kill them all” minutes before suffocating a fellow inmate has been found guilty of manslaughter, not murder, after a judge found he was intoxicated at the time.
Mervyn Keith Davidson was on remand for several violent offences in February 2018, when he walked into 54-year-old Alfredo Pengue’s cell at Silverwater prison, shut the door and strangled him.
Shortly before the killing, Davidson consumed ice and Xanax and told other prisoners with his fists above his head that he would “kill them all” . Two days later during a police interview, he urged police to hurry up. “I know what I’m here for. Just hurry up and do the charge paperwork so I can go back to my cell and sleep,” he said on February 11, 2018.
