Mother Stabbed Twice Then Choked To Death By Her Lover After She Shouted Another Man's Name During Sex
Gary Higgs, 44, flipped when his girlfriend suddenly cried out, 'Chris' as they made love in their bedroom.
Enraged, he stormed downstairs, grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed Joanne once in the back and in the chest.
Afterwards as she lay dying from her wounds, Higgs throttled the 41-year-old to death with the electrical flex of their alarm clock.
When police caught up with him he confessed: 'I asked her why she said "Chris" but she said she must have been thinking about her daughter's boyfriend Chris.
'It didn't make any sense to me and I was getting more angry. Why was she thinking about her daughter's boyfriend when we were having sex? wow
'I couldn't get things out of my mind. I didn't know exactly what I was thinking. I picked the knife up and carried it upstairs to the bedroom.
'I don't remember thinking I wanted to harm Jo at this time. I was just so mad. I am truly deeply sorry for what I have done.'
Yesterday Higgs was jailed for life for the murder and told he must serve a minimum of 15 years before he will be considered for release.
what a shame
