Alert message sent 01/03/2019 14:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


A man has been jailed for eight and a half years for the manslaughter of Louella Fletcher-Michie for failing to get her the vital medical help she needed after she took a class A drug he had supplied her at Bestival.

Ceon Broughton, 30 and of Island Centre Way, Enfield, London, watched his girlfriend’s condition deteriorate over a six-hour period in an area of restricted woodland off the festival site at Lulworth Castle in Dorset on the afternoon and evening of Sunday 10 September 2017.

Broughton was convicted unanimously by a jury at Winchester Crown Court on Thursday 28 February 2019 of manslaughter by gross negligence. He was also convicted of supplying the class A drug 2C-P to her. He had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of supplying 2C-P to Louella and another man at Glastonbury in June 2017. 

He was sentenced at the same court today, Friday 1 March 2019.

When sentencing Broughton, judge Mr Justice Goose labelled his actions as "selfish", and said that due to being on a suspended sentence Broughton was more concerned for himself and avoiding being arrested than for saving Louella's life.
