FACTFILE

 

Derek Smith, 61, was jailed at Luton Crown Court after he admitted the murder of his second wife Carolyn, aged 40.

Her body was found after police were called to their house in Stanmore Road, Stevenage, Herts, on 24th January 2007..

The court had heard how Mrs Smith had told her husband she was leaving him on her 40th birthday, nine days before he killed her.

Smith had taken 60 paracetamol on the night he killed his wife, in an attempt to kill himself.

Smith, who originally denied murder but changed his plea before the trial, will serve a minimum of twelve-and-a-half years.
