Mark Chilman killed Neil Parkinson, who was found after police were called to a layby in Ankerdine Road, near Cotheridge, Worcestershire, at 10.30 pm on 12 December last year.
The court heard Chilman prepared by “scoping” his ex-partner’s farm, stealing two petrol jerry cans, buying disposable mobile phones, and leaving his cellphone elsewhere while asking a friend to give him a false alibi.
He then waited for Mr. Parkinson, 66, to drive away from the farm in Broadwas, to care for his 94-year-old mother, who had dementia.
When the victim got out to lock the gate, Chilman attacked him, striking him with a weapon, possibly a hammer; he fractured the base of his skull and left him unconscious.
