Murderer's son denies threatening his cousin
THE son of a convicted murderer has claimed his cousin told him he had “dug his mother’s grave”, Bolton Crown Court heard.
Grant Workman, son of millionaire car dealer Ian Workman, is appealing against a conviction and sentence after being found guilty of threatening violence towards David Workman.
He was found guilty after a trial at Bolton Magistrates’ Court last year.
Bolton Crown Court heard Workman made threats to kill his cousin David Workman and “break his legs” at Morrisons in Harwood on May 16 last year.
David Workman told the court his cousin then followed him in his car to his flat. On the way David Workman phoned his flatmate, who is a serving police officer.
His flatmate came out and Workman continued to make threats before driving off, it is alleged.
The dispute was said to have originated from a fall-out between John Workman, David Workman’s father, and Ian Workman, Grant Workman’s father, over money. A civil case has been held.
Ian Workman is serving a 17-and-a-half year jail term after being found guilty in December, 2011, of stabbing his ex-wife, Susan Workman, to death.
David Workman said the claims by his cousin were not true.
The case is continuing.
