Ex-wife is jailed for sex killing

12-17-2003 United Kingdom:

A WOMAN was jailed for life yesterday after she lured her ex-husband into a kinky sex session and stabbed him to death.

Mum-of-two Denise Lawrence, 47, handcuffed Adrian Anson to his bed then plunged a kitchen knife through his heart.

Prosecutor Greg Taylor QC said: "This was not a crime of passion - it was an execution.

"She handcuffed him to special hoops in the bedroom wall and tied his feet. "Lawrence put a black mask on his head that he couldn't see through. Then they had sex."

Cardiff crown court heard Lawrence left him to die tied up and with the front door to his home in Roath, Cardiff, locked to prevent him getting out.

Mr Taylor said: "Anson was bleeding and tied up. She turns up the music so she can't hear him."

Lawrence from Cardiff, who denied murder, said she believed Anson, 37, was wrongly cleared of sex offences against two girls.

Mr Justice Richards told her: "This was an act of great wickedness." ..more.. by Richard Smith. See also trial transcript
