A man who was jailed after killing his wife and stuffing her body in a suitcase just after they married, has been taken to a hospital following a prison attack.

On October 27 last year, Thomas Nutt murdered Dawn Walker and brutally packed her body into a bag at their home in Lightcliffe, West Yorkshire.

He blamed her disappearance on mental health – in reality, he had dumped her body into some bushes while inside the bag.

Nutt was found guilty of strangling the 52-year-old nan and given a 22-year sentence.

He has since been spending his time inside a Category B Leeds prison but was attacked by a fellow inmate on Saturday, August 20.

He suffered extensive bruises, abrasions and cuts while he walked around the prison's exercise yard.

According to the MailOnline, a source said: "It was like he had been beaten up by [world heavyweight boxing champion] Oleksandr Usyk.

"Nutt is a bully and was acting the big I am around the wings. He made himself a target.

"Another prisoner took exception to his antics and gave him a good pasting. He was a mess afterwards.

"Nutt is considered the lowest of the low and he will be frantic with worry that he is now a big target.

"He will be looking over his shoulder."

He is understood to be in hospital with a couple of prison guards.

He was found guilty of killing Dawn on August 10 with Bradford Crown Court hearing how he killed her on their wedding night.

As part of the trial, West Yorkshire Police had shared CCTV of Nutt dragging Dawn out of their home in a suitcase.

Judge Jonathan Rose said as he sentenced him to life: "Dawn Walker died because you are a bully, used to getting your own way with women, used to controlling and manipulating women and used to using your considerable size advantage to inflict violence on women if you considered it necessary to do so."

He added he had "desecrated" her body by breaking bones to fit Dawn into the suitcase.

Dawn's daughter, Kiera-Lee Guest, said to the court: "Justice will be served for my beautiful mother."

Her sister, Lisa, added for the court: "I mourn for my sister who suffered so much and felt like she had nobody to turn to because this man made her feel worthless."
