Wife's heartbreak as robber who killed her paraglider husband for his wallet in Mongolia is jailed for 16 years for murder.

The devastated wife of a British paraglider murdered in Mongolia has revealed how her life has 'ended' since his death, as his killer is sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Steve Nash, 53, from Helsby, Cheshire, was fatally stabbed during a robbery in September 2016, while he was trying to cross the Khangai Nuruu mountain range in the country.

His body was later found in the Arkhangai province in central Mongolia, with wounds to his chest and his wallet and passport missing.

Thief Gantulga Batsukh was found guilty of his brutal murder following a trial in Mongolia on Friday and will serve his sentence in a maximum security jail.

Mr Nash's wife Shirley said: 'Since Steve was taken from me, I feel so alone and lost and my whole life is pointless without him. It is so unfair; not just on us, but on Steve himself.

'He loved life, had so much to live for and had so many plans and ambitions. I have lost my husband and my best friend. When this person ended Steve's life, he ended mine too.'

Mr Nash had been journeying across the country on a paragliding trip with friend Gareth Aston, but had been forced to continue solo after his companion retired with an injury.
