TWO brothers have been found guilty of a brutal assault on a man they believed was involved with the death of their half-sister.

Gary and Raymond Collins, along with Samantha Lee, attacked Jason Webb at his home in Pentland Close, Buckskin, Basingstoke, on February 11 this year.

He was stabbed through the cheek and was also hit with a vacuum cleaner attachment, a bike, a lamp and a mirror, as well as having drop kicks aimed at him as he sat on a chair.

This morning, at jury at Winchester Crown Court found all three defendants guilty of wounding with intent and having an offensive weapon.

The trial had heard the attack took place after the death of Sally Wheeler, the brothers’ half-sister, at a house in Vyne Road, South View, Basingstoke, on February 9.

Opening the trial, prosecutor David Reid said: “There is some suggestion her death could have been from a drug overdose.

“The Crown says these three defendants (wrongly) held the unfortunate victim in some way responsible for what happened to Sally Wheeler.”

Gary Collins, 34, of Worting Road, Basingstoke, Raymond Collins, 33, of Penny Black Lane, Rooksdown, Basingstoke, and Samantha Lee, 28, of Winklebury Centre, Winklebury, Basingstoke, will be sentenced at Portsmouth Crown Court on Friday, September 26.
