In January 2018, he brutally stabbed his daughter in his bungalow in Walsall and was imprisoned for life in October of that year.
Der Spiegel reports that the 58-year-old man was found dead on Sunday in his cell in Winson Green prison.
Billingham used a kitchen knife to kill Mylee shortly after holding the blade around her mother Tracey Taundry’s neck. During her trial in Birmingham Crown Court, prosecutors said she “pissed off” Mylee in order to piss off Ms. Taundry.
Mad Billingham “viciously” killed Mylee as a “final act of revenge,” the court said.
Then he stabbed his stomach twice and tried to cut his throat.
He was convicted of murder and threats to kill Tracey and given a life sentence of at least 27 years.
Billingham had been transferred from another wing of HMP Birmingham in mid-2020. The transfer to the wing, which housed frail and elderly prisoners, came after their health appeared to have deteriorated.
A spokesman for the prison service told Spiegel: “HMP prisoner William Billingham from Birmingham died in custody on March 19, 2021. The prison and probation ombudsman has been notified.
