A jealous former trainee jockey who brutally stabbed and strangled his ex-girlfriend at her Suffolk home in front of her three-old-son has been ordered to serve 30 years of a life sentence.
Judge Levett said her death had nothing to do with his mental health or anti-depressant medication he’d been prescribed but because he was “a violent, controlling, selfish bully which he’d always been and probably always would be”.
High five, your honour!
Keir Monteith QC for Jessop said his client had loved Miss Nash and was sorry for killing her.
He said Jessop had been suffering from depression and a personality disorder and his culpability for the killing should be reduced because of the state of his mental health.
I wonder how long he thought about it..? About a nanosecond, I bet.
He said Jessop had been forced to self-isolate in prison because he’d been bullied and threatened and his future was “bleak.”
His victim doesn't have a future. Time for this again...
