Racist killer Anthony Walker is just months away from his freedom after being transferred to an open prison.

Michael Barton – brother of former Man City and QPR players Joey – was jailed for 18 years in 2006 for his role in the murder of 18-year-old Anthony.

But he has already taken the first steps towards a release after moving to HMP Thorn Cross, in Cheshire.

It is thought the killer, 33, could be released this summer.

A source said: “Depending on his behavior, Barton will be out in August.”

Barton, 17, and cousin Paul Taylor, 20, racially abused black A-level student Anthony before launching the terror attack in Liverpool park in 2005.

At sentencing, Barton was told he was “toxic to any civilized society”.

In 2016, he had a year cut from his time, leaving Anthony’s mother, Dr Gee Walker, feeling “betrayed”.

However, Dr. Walker said: “Our justice system is the laughing stock of the world. Life is certainly not meant to be life.

“But I choose to forgive because living a life full of hatred is cruel.”
