Man cut up his wife's body and dumped her 'like garbage' after row over chips

A ROW over chips ended in a man killing his wife, cutting up her body and dumping it “like garbage”, a court was told.

Thomas McCann, 49, strangled wife Yvonne, 46, and pretended to their children she was alive by sending texts while dismembering her body.

She was in a relationship with another man, the court was told.

Her last text message to a neighbour on May 23, 2020, said they were arguing.

Andrew Smith, prosecuting, said: “Seemingly the trigger was some used frozen chips.

"During that argument it is now clear that the defendant attacked Yvonne, strangled her to death in the bathroom and thereafter he dismembered her body in the bath."

Her remains were found at a country park and a recycling centre.

Only half were located.

McCann, of Brinnington, Gtr Manchester, has admitted murder and will be sentenced today at Manchester crown court.

In a victim statement from Mrs McCann's children, Rachel Lawson, her daughter, told: "We are all really struggling with this.

"We love our mum very much, we also love our dad."
