Robert Brown Health After Being Jailed For 13 Years
Robert Brown is due for automatic release in November, having served 13 years in jail. Due to the news, people are eager to know about his health problems as Brown was deemed to pose a severe menace to the public still.
Moreover, Brown was blocked from moving to an open jail in 2022 because he was deemed to be too dangerous. He was kept confined in a Category C prison.

Robert Brown Age: How Old Is He? Case Details
Robert Brown is 59 years old as of 2023. By profession, Brown served at British Airways as a captain. Further details about his profession and other family members remain unknown.
However, we know that Brown was married to his wife, Joanna Simpson. Moreover, his name came into the spotlight when Brown killed Simpson in 2010.
In 2010, Robert arrived at the Ascot House of Joanna. He was returning their two kids after a half-term visit. The kids ran inside the family room, leaving Brown and Simpson in the hallway.
Brown reportedly took a hammer he’d packed in the kids’ bag and bludgeoned Joanna continually. There were injuries on Simpson’s hands and arms, where Simpson defended herself, and fractures and double ruptures on her eyes and cheeks, nose and skull.
Their daughter said she heard a “bang, bang, bang” noise as the blows fell. It is reported that Brown lifted Joanna’s body into the back of his Volvo and covered her in plastic sheeting. After that, he returned to the house to detach the phone, remove the CCTV system, then collect the kids.
As they drove away, their son asked if Robert was going to take Simpson to the hospital, but he dropped them at his house with his current partner, Stephanie.
In May 2011, Simpson’s family and friends expected a murder conviction and a life sentence for Robert. Likewise, Brown was found not guilty of murder and pleaded guilty to killing with diminished responsibility.
As said earlier, Simpson is set to automatic release in November 2023 without parole or risk assessment.
