Matthew Moseley, aged 50, has been given a life sentence and ordered to serve at least 26 years in jail after being found guilty of murder. Moseley fired a Beretta semi-automatic shotgun at a man who had come to his home in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire to discuss a long-running dispute between their children. The victim died later in hospital. Police originally arrested Moseley’s 14-year-old son boy on suspicion of murder after Moseley persuaded him to take the blame. The teenager made a fake confession but, even when he changed his account, Moseley maintained his innocence, saying he had knocked the gun from his son's hands. In a conversation recorded in a prison van, Moseley was heard to say to his son: "You are a minor. You can't go to any jail. Self-defence for you and you didn't know what you were doing. Me, different ball game. And that is the way we have got to go with this.”
