The Saw Killer, a convicted lag, says he tried to kill a guard with a shank.


A notorious British inmate has confessed to trying to stab a guard to death.

Saw Killer Matthew Tinling, 35, has already been incarcerated for life for the brutal murder of a former soldier and the attempted murder of another lag with a knife.


After he viciously stabbed a prison guard in February 2021 at HMP Woodhill in Buckinghamshire, near Milton Keynes, he now faces an even longer sentence behind bars.

After a workout, while being led back to his cell, Tinling attacked Samuel Morris.

He pleaded guilty to attempted murder; his sentencing has been postponed.

At Woodhill, Tinling resides in a high-security section reserved for the most dangerous inmates.

We will not stand for any kind of attack on our dedicated staff,” the Prison Service said in a statement. “We will always advocate for the harshest penalties possible.”
