Ewen Reynolds, 44, brutally attacked Zac Evans and Keaton Jones
Evans died from a blow so savage it broke his jaw and cut blood vessels
Thug Reynolds said his use of the machete was an act of self-defence
Found guilty of murder and attempted murder at Bristol Crown Court
A former car dealer who hacked a teenager to death with a two-foot long machete during a 'devastating' and brutal attack has been convicted of murder.
Ewen Reynolds, 44, struck 19-year-old Zac Evans in the neck with such force that it broke his jaw bone and severed major blood vessels.
The violent thug also swung his lethal weapon at Keaton Jones, 23, attempting to murder him with a blow to the side of the head.
Evans died almost instantly but Jones survived the savage attack in the car park of the Pike and Musket pub in Tuffley, Gloucester on January 24, 2015.
Reynolds denied one count of murder and one count of attempted murder, claiming his use of the machete was a lawful and proportionate act of self-defence.
But he was found guilty on both counts at Bristol Crown Court following a two-week trial.
The court heard how a dispute between Reynold’s wife and the girlfriend of Mr Jones led to the murder.
Reynolds got the weapon from his van parked nearby and grainy CCTV footage showed him attacking the two friends with the machete.
In just 87 seconds, they had suffered blows to their necks.
The CCTV cameras captured Reynolds calmly strolling away, getting in his van and driving off. He was arrested the following day.
A post-mortem examination found painter and decorator Mr Evans, known to friends and family as Sparky, had suffered a large “incised chop wound” to the left hand side of his neck, which severed arteries and veins. He also suffered a smaller cut to his cheek.
