Man convicted of murder – Oxford

Hello Resident,


Following an investigation by our Major Crime Unit, a man has been convicted of murdering Phillip Breach in Oxford in 2022.


Liam Jones, aged 45, of Bonar Road, Oxford, pictured, was found guilty of one count of murder at Oxford Crown Court today.


At around 6.05am on 30 November 2022, officers attended Wood Farm Park between Wood Farm Road and Nuffield Road following a report of a man calling for help. The victim, Phillip, aged 59, from Oxford, was found with a head wound in a critical condition beside a path in the park. He sadly died in hospital soon afterwards.


Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Pete Clarke, of the Major Crime Unit, said: “First and foremost, I would like to commend Phillip Breach’s family for their patience as they have had to wait over 15 months for justice, as the trial had to be abandoned last year due to Liam Jones’ ill health. 


“A very dangerous man, Jones, has now been convicted of murdering Phillip after a lengthy and thorough investigation. Thames Valley Police will never tolerate such violence in its communities.”
