A MUM and son have been jailed over a "warped" stalking campaign to frame his love rival and seduce the girl he was obsessed with.
Beaumont Bricka, 26, waged a "twisted" war against Eve Taylor by bombarding her with sick messages urging her to kill herself from a network of fake accounts.
The obsessed stable hand even sent himself threats to pose as a fellow "victim" as he targeted Eve's innocent boyfriend Tim Dobson.
Tim was arrested over the "vendetta" against his girlfriend, leaving him on the brink of suicide as Bricka grew "close" to his love interest.
Bricka also turned his selfish interests to nine others connected to 24-year-old Eve – including her NHS medical director dad Dr Tim Taylor, who was wrongly branded a paedophile.
When police finally caught up with him, Bricka's mum Tonia, 63, claimed she was the stalker in a doomed bid to save her son.

The pair were today jailed after being convicted of perverting the course of justice at Portsmouth Crown Court.
Bricka, who was also found guilty of eight counts of stalking and two counts of sending malicious communications, branded a "coward" as he was caged for seven years and eight month.
His mum was handed a two year and eight month sentence, with both slapped with a ten year restraining order.
The court heard how Bricka lived with his mum in a £530,000 cottage in the affluent village of Aldingbourne, West Sussex, where he would sometimes ride horses with Eve.

During a year-long stalking campaign, he made multiple fake accounts on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and WhatsApp using girls' names.
He also set up at least 34 different phone numbers, six email addresses, and used three mobile phones to target Eve.
The "intelligent, manipulative and corrosive liar" would contact her and her pals to wrongly claim Tim was cheating on her, claiming: "Can you leave my boyfriend alone you ugly little freak".
He sent "chilling" photos of nooses and bloody knives to Eve and himself and spun a vile web of lies claiming she had STDs.
Bricka also posted adverts calling her an escort and a "cheating witch", while Eve's dad Dr Taylor was probed by Sussex NHS Trust over a false complaint he inappropriately messaged an 11-year-old girl.
As a result, he was banned from meetings and seeing patients due to the fake allegations.
During this time, unwitting Eve grew close to Bricka after growing concerned her partner was behind the campaign.
She was left feeling "incredibly guilty" that Bricka was also receiving death threats and believed it was all her fault.
Recalling the horror, Eve told jurors: "I was devastated, a complete mess. I felt really disturbed and stressed and guilty… It was horrible, the messages made me feel dirty.
"I was really worried, it felt threatening and felt directed at Beau, who at the time I felt concerned for.
"We definitely got closer as this was happening as he was receiving messages as well. He was just a friend, I felt incredibly guilty and worried that he was getting death threats and it was my fault."
The warped bid finally came to an end in April 2020 when police spotted Bricka on CCTV topping up one of the pay-as-you-go phones used to send messages.
When officers went to his home, Tonia Bricka tried insisting she was the stalker and said she was "addicted to it".
But her claims were dismissed as "nonsense" and Bricka was found to be behind the twisted crusade.
Speaking of his own turmoil, Tim said: "Somebody, the stalker, was seriously trying to incriminate me and trying to get me locked up.
"This has been the worst period of my life, it was so dire I was suspected of being the stalker and arrested.
"At times over the last year I have felt suicidal and contemplated taking my own life.
"I started drinking heavily. I wanted to drink to forget the situation I was in.
