Jailed for killing wife

South Wales Evening Post - - SMARTER FOR 10 -

A GAY phar­ma­cist who mer­ci­lessly stran­gled his wife so he could start a new life in Aus­tralia with his boyfriend and a £2 mil­lion life in­sur­ance pay­out will serve at least 30 years of a life sen­tence in prison.

Mitesh Pa­tel, 37, had plot­ted to kill his wife Jes­sica for years and throt­tled her with his hands after chok­ing her and sub­du­ing her with in­sulin.

She fought for her life dur­ing the at­tack at their home in Mid­dles­brough be­fore her hus­band staged a rob­bery to make it look like an in­truder killed her.
