Groom jailed for life after raping stranger hours before marrying his pregnant fiancee

A groom-to-be has been jailed for life with nine years minimum for raping a stranger in a park, hours before marrying his pregnant fiancée.

Predatory Derry McCann, 28, launched his horrific two-hour assault on the day of his wedding – a decade after he was jailed over another parkland rape.

It was revealed played “mind games” after dragging the woman into the undergrowth in a park in east London on January 13.He taunted her by asking what she thought he would do next, Snaresbrook Crown Court was told.
Hours later, he tied the knot with his girlfriend in a ceremony at The Vestry in Bromley-by-Bow, prosecutors said.

According to Daily Mirror, he is currently on suicide watch at HMP Belmarsh after trying to kill himself ahead of today’s sentencing.

McCann had been released in December 2015 after serving less than nine years of a life sentence imposed in 2006 when he was 17 for a near identical attack on a trainee solicitor.

Today he was handed three concurrent life sentences today with a minimum of nine years – the same minimum term he received in 2006
