Goth girl's boyfriend Robert Maltby: I wish they had k!lled me instead

The grief-stricken boyfriend of a goth girl kicked to death by drunken teenagers said yesterday: "I wish they'd murdered me instead."

Robert Maltby, 21, who survived the ferocious attack that k!lled Sophie Lancaster, 20, added: "She should have run off and left me to die. She was my world."

He told yesterday how he gazed at his girlfriend Sophie Lancaster as she lay dying in her hospital bed - and said to himself: "What have we done to deserve this?"

Robert, 21, and Sophie, 20, suffered terrible injuries after a ferocious attack by five drunken teenage thugs who picked on them simply because they were goths.

He survived - but emerged from a coma to discover Sophie was dying from massive head injuries.

Speaking after 15-year-old Brendan Harris was found guilty of Sophie's murder, Robert said: "I was fine until I saw her. That was when I broke down.

"All I wanted to do was give her something - but all I had on me was a cheap watch my grandad had given me so I just took it off and gave it to her.

"If I could have I would have ripped my heart out and given it to her and with any luck bring her back - but I did not have it in my power.

"All I could think was 'This isn't right - why is this happening?' "I couldn't see how I had possibly offended the world to have this happen.

"What had we done? Why aren't people who go out attacking people having to see their girlfriends about to die?

"She was my entire world. I'm not ashamed to say that."




Robert and Sophie were attacked in a park in Bacup, Lancs, by Harris, 16-year-old Ryan Herbert and three other teenage boys.

Boozed-up thugs Herbert, 16, left and Harris, 15, were like wild animals

The gang, described in court as "like a pack of wild animals", kicked and punched Robert then stamped on his head until he was unconscious.

Sophie cried for them to stop as she cradled his head on her lap.

But Herbert kicked her in the face and he and Harris then stamped on her head as she lay on the ground.

Paramedics said the couple's injuries were so bad they could not tell them apart. Sophie died 13 day later.

Robert's injuries left him with hazy recollections of the late night attack.

He said: "If they'd just hit me a couple of times I could have accepted it.

"I could even have accepted if what had happened to me had been even worse. If I might not have survived.

"But you do not do that to a young girl. There are certain codes you have to live by as a man. And the No1 is you do not beat up girls.

"I just do not understand the mentality of someone saying 'OK we have just beaten him probably to death - so we will beat up his girlfriend now'.

"I really wish she had legged it, waited until they'd left and come back. I wish she'd left me to die if I'm honest."

Robert said he hoped the brutes who k!lled Sophie would suffer for the rest of their lives. He added: "I think that whatever happens to them can never be as bad as what I want to happen.

"I want them to never stop suffering for what they have done. I want it to be a life-long thing. I do not even think I can say what I want to happen."

Robert said the attack on Sophie had destroyed his dreams of marrying her and having a family.

He added: "Everything I was doing around Sophie was really just to make have a decent life together." Herbert and Harris, from Bacup, were named for the first time yesterday when a judge at Preston crown court lifted an order banning identification.

Herbert earlier admitted murder.

Three other boys, two aged 17 and one 16, have admitted a.ssault. They will be sentenced later.

The court was told the five were drinking heavily immediately before the attack. Harris denied murder but admitted GBH on Robert. Five months before murdering Sophie, Harris and Herbert had kicked and stamped on a boy of 16.

Judge Anthony Russell QC said he was duty bound to give Harris and Herbert life sentences. Outside court Sophie's mum Sylvia, 52, said: "Her voice was cruelly silenced in a single mindless act. Sophie's death was a tragedy in many ways.

"It has also ruined the lives of those responsible as well as their families." Sylvia, who yesterday released harrowing pictures of Sophie in a coma, added: "It is a tragedy for a society which in the past prided itself on tolerance.

"I am convinced Sophie was k!lled simply because of the way she looked. She did not conform to the ideals of those who took her life.

"We need to show respect, compassion and tolerance for those whose culture differs from our own."

Detective Superintendent Mick Gradwell said Sophie's murder was one of the most violent he had come across. And he criticised the parents of the teenage attackers for "a total lack of control".

He added: "I really don't think they have taken seriously how repulsive this incident was." Det Supt Gradwell said when Harris was initially interviewed he "laughed and joked" with his mum.

Sophie's murder led to a huge outpouring of grief. Thousands of people visited a webpage dedicated to her. And a memorial fund was also established by her family and friends. But that is scant consolation for heartbroken Robert.

He said: "Now I wake up in the morning and I'm on my own. It feels like someone nicked my entire life.

I always thought there was one person for everyone. If mine's gone, what am I going to do now?"

Using a gun on someone without a gun, your hard as fu*k aren't you.

I stopped reading after the constant "teenage thugs" comments thrown in, I was like this has to be from England. Sounds like a chapter out of A Clockwork Orange.
