THE STORY of an Abbeydale man who killed his wife and dismembered her with a hacksaw will be aired on television this week.
The last in a six-part series aired on The Crime and Investigation Network which looks a prisoners given whole-life sentences will focus on Glyn Dix, who was sent to a secure hospital and told he would die in prison in 2005.
He was found crouching naked over wife Hazel's body in the kitchen of their home in Seymour Drive the previous year and told police he had stabbed the mother-of-six during an argument over what to watch on television and had heard voices in his head telling him to chop her body into pieces because she 'liked the place to be clean'.
Psychiatric reports showed he suffered from extreme schizophrenia and displayed psychotic tendencies when he did not take medication and Birmingham Crown Court was told the risk of him re-offending was extremely high.
Dix had already served a life sentence for murdering a young mother of two called Pia Overbury in 1979.
After being reported missing by her family, she was found dead in woods near Gloucester having been stabbed in the back.
A spokesman for the programme, which starts at 9pm on Monday (October 21), said: "This episode details the murders and investigates the bizarre and dark side to Glyn Dix - and a murder Hazel's family believed had all the hallmarks of a ritualistic sacrifice.
"When Life Means Life Series Two focuses on lesser-known prisoners such as Arthur Hutchinson, David Cook, Trevor Hardy, Stephen Farrow, Mark Hobson and Glyn Dix. Each episode features detectives, forensic scientists and victims’ families as well as forensic psychologist Kerry Daynes, who attempts to unlock the minds of these killers and provide an insight into what may have set them on the path to a whole-life tariff."
