Man who tipped granddad out of wheelchair and kicked him to death jailed for life

A martial arts fan who murdered a vulnerable amputee in his wheelchair
was fuelled by his 'hatred' for homeless people.

Daniel Sharples was jailed for life this morning for his brutal attack
on defenceless Michael Mairs who he battered with powerful kicks to
his face.

The 38-year-old continued to beat the 53-year-old as he lay
unconscious on the ground, even tipping him out of his wheelchair onto
the floor.
