16st WOMAN STAMPED BOYFRIEND TO DEATH
A VICIOUS murderess who kept a book about women killers by her bedside then stamped her boyfriend to death has been caged for 17½ years.
Maxine Oliver ( right), 45, was fed up with what she called her 37-year-old lover’s messy habits and wanted him out of the flat they shared, a court heard.
On the night Carl Jones died neighbours heard 16-stone her scream: “Do you want me to kill you? Do you? Do you?”
The court heard that a book called Deadlier than the Male: Ten True Stories of Women Who Kill had been found in Oliver’s bedside drawer at the flat in Ash Vale, Surrey.
Oliver had denied murder and throughout her trial had disclaimed responsibility for Mr Jones’s fatal injuries, insisting that someone else must have inflicted them.
But Oliver was jailed for life at Guildford Crown Court after being convicted of murder.
When the sentence was announced members of Oliver’s family shouted abuse at the family of the dead man, saying, “Are you happy now?” and “Liars” and “Dickhead” at a male relative of Mr Jones before storming out of the court.
Sentencing her, Judge Cristopher Critchlow said that Mr Jones had suffered brain injuries, broken ribs and a crushed larynx.
Police said the injuries were consistent the victim being repeatedly stamped on as he lay on the ground.
He told her: “You became less and less tolerant of him and wanted him out of the flat. It is clear that you were in a temper when you carried out the assault from which he died.”
The judge pointed out that the victim was a 11 stone and walked with the aid of a stick after suffering problems with his brain.
Oliver’s defence said she had: “...more and more frustrated at his excessive drinking, and the situation culminated in a terrible loss of temper.”
