Midwife murder suspect Michael Stirling ‘beaten up in prison’, Report

Midwife murder suspect Michael Stirling ‘left cowering in his jail cell’ after being battered while on remand.

The alleged attack at HMP Dovegate, near Uttoxeter, came hours before he appeared in court charged with killing 28-year-old Samantha Eastwood.

According to The Sun’s sources, the 32-year-old, of Gratton Road, Bucknall, suffered cuts and bruises in Tuesday’s incident and was moved to another part of the jail soon after.

Stirling – the brother-in-law of Samantha’s ex-fiance – later appeared at Stafford Crown Court via videolink yesterday.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Northampton Crown Court on October 5 for a plea and case management hearing. A provisional trial date has been set for next February.

Samantha, of Greenside Avenue, Baddeley Green, was last seen in uniform leaving work at Royal Stoke University Hospital on the morning of July 27.

She was reported missing later that day when she failed to turn up for a night shift.
