10 YEARS FOR HARRY HILL KILLER
A DENTAL nurse who stabbed her husband to death when he refused to turn off the football and let her watch Harry Hill’s TV Burp has been jailed for ten years.
Bully Leonora Sinclair, 50, stabbed Lloyd, 73, in the leg with a kitchen knife and he bled to death after she delayed calling an ambulance.
The couple had been married just ten months when Sinclair stabbed her chauffeur husband, the Old Bailey heard.
Mr Sinclair was a ‘distinguished gentleman’ who still worked as a driver for the day care centre at his local church in north London.
His wife was ‘controlling, suspicious and domineering’ and enjoyed humiliating him.
She had beaten and abused him in front of friends and workmates and broken his arm by pushing him down the stairs during a row.
The final argument started when she made him switch off football so she could watch Harry Hill at their home in Enfield, north London.
Judge Stephen Kramer told the expressionless Sinclair: “I am satisfied from the evidence this court heard that the relationship was a volatile one with many arguments and some violence.
“I am satisfied you are a domineering person with a significant temper, especially in drink.’
The judge said that Sinclair had been drinking as the couple sat down to watch TV.
“There was a disagreement between you and your husband about viewing the TV. You were the only other person present in the house.
“You used that knife on the deceased. I am satisfied you must have taken it from the a block in the kitchen to the hallway.
“It is clear that by your actions you have deprived friends and family and all those at the day centre of a much loved and respected man.”
Leonora was cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter.
