Follow up:One of Mother Teresa's former assistants dies... in bar brawl.
A martial arts expert has been found guilty of murdering a charity worker after a row in a pub.
Mark Bloomfield, 54, who had previously worked as a special assistant to Mother Theresa, was found injured outside the Full Moon pub on High Street in Swansea in July. He died two days later. Colin Payne, 61 and from the city, had admitted manslaughter claiming self defence but was found guilty of murder by a jury at Swansea Crown Court. He will be sentenced on Thursday and was told to expect a life sentence.
The court heard Payne previously admitted perverting the course of justice by watching CCTV footage of the murder from behind the bar, ripping the computer out and throwing it over the back wall of the pub - though police were able to retrieve it.
