Triple Murder

Background Edit

Sharon 'Shaz' Wylie was brought up in Sheffield with her mother, brother and violent step-father. She would often allow her step-father to beat her up to stop him beating her best friend; her dog Molly.

Sentence Edit

Shaz worked in a supermarket on the fish counter, with a bully as her boss. To get revenge on her and for a joke, she poured the juice from old oysters on to the fresh ones. As a result several people got food poisoning and eventually 3 people died. She was found guilty of triple murder and got life.

Whilst in Larkhall Edit

Shaz was the girlfriend of Denny Blood (Alicya Eyo). They both escape with Shell Dockley (Debra Stephenson) in Series 3, but Shaz has an accident and is left behind and brought back to prison, where she is bullied by Al McKenzie (Pauline Campbell) and Maxi Purvis (Kerry Norton). With the help of Yvonne Atkins (Linda Henry) she toughens up and beats Maxi up. This results in her being transferred to another prison. She returns at the end of Series 4 with magic mushrooms for her and Denny. Unfortunately Snowball Merriman (Nicole Faraday) sets off a bomb as part of her escape plan and Shaz dies in the fire.
