Jayesh Gobar Wiki – Jayesh Gobar Biography
A baggage handler was sentenced to at least 27 years in prison for the ‘unimaginably brutal’ murder of his British Airways host lover.
Jayesh Gobar, 36, was convicted by a jury at Hove Crown Court of murdering 58-year-old Nelly Myers at her home in Rotherfield, near Crowborough, East Sussex, on December 17 last year.
Judge Christine Laing told the QC court that Gobar of Crawley, West Sussex, attacked the mother of two children after she was furious that she did not give her money to fund her drug habit.
He told Gobar: ‘What’s clear is that Nelly Myers wouldn’t give you any money, and for an hour and a quarter after that, you subjected him to a prolonged and brutal attack to get him.
The horror and trauma of that last hour of his life is unimaginable.
The judge continued: There were several areas of his body where you did not kick, stigmatize or punch.
He had suffered 23 rib fractures and traumatic brain injuries, the most common type in high-speed car accidents.
One of the most touching images was undoubtedly the piles of hair in the hallway by you as you try to escape what should be the security and sanctity of your own home.
It was an act of brutality against a vulnerable woman. I haven’t felt a bit of regret on your part for what you’ve done to a woman who just tried to help you. ‘
The judge added that she spat all over Ms. Myers’ home to express her ‘anger’ against Gobar not giving her any money.
Case president Richard Hearnden told the hearing that Ms. Myers, a customer service host for British Airways at Gatwick Airport, had a “passionate” relationship with Gobar and was “committed” to him.
The court heard that Gobar was imprisoned for a violent robbery by Ms. Myers in 2018 but resumed the relationship after he was released from prison.
Ms. Myers was born in Lima, Peru and worked for the South American country’s national airline for many years before meeting her married BA pilot Kevin Myers.
He moved to England and had two sons named James and David.
The family lived in a ‘suburban-looking detached house’ in Crowborough, but Ms. Myers occupied the property alone after her marriage ended in 2014.
“Nelly was the kind of person I wanted to be, and her presence, charisma, and charm were incredible,” Mr. Myers said in his courtroom statement.
“ He obviously died a brutal slow death, and I cannot understand the pain and suffering that must have endured.
“She was a strong woman and she would fight for her life, but she had no chance.”
In an emotional statement he read to the court, James Myers said of his mother: ‘No one can replace him, a completely irreplaceable gap remains.
I will spend the rest of my life missing him.
Prosecutor Mr. Hearnden said, ‘Mrs. Myers fell in love with Mr. Gobar, there is no other way to express this, she was completely obsessed with and devoted to him.
What they had was an erratic and turbulent but often passionate acquaintance.
There was sexual intimacy, but it was rare; He seemed to be interested only in his money, while craving for friendship and attention.
He always gave him cash and used that money for drugs.
Ms. Myers was found dead at her home on the evening of December 18, after her son James alerted the police.
Officers found him with multiple injuries while lying partially clothed in the hallway, and Mr. Hearnden found that he died of serious head injuries during an autopsy examination.
The prosecutor said that the scattered paperwork in Gobar’s home had a footprint found and his blood was found in his shoes when he was arrested.
He said: ‘Mr. Gobar was not a professional murderer, he killed him in anger in order to steal from him and thus feed a drug habit.’
