Woman jailed for life for murder of boyfriend
A woman has been jailed for life after admitting murdering her boyfriend.
Ellishia Allen, 28, stabbed Karl Bloxham in the chest with a kitchen knife after he told her of his plans to leave her. She attacked him when he went to their shared flat in Spruce Grove, Hucknall, on July 29, 2015.
She was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years in prison when she admitted murder at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday, 21 September.
The court heard Mr Bloxham, 39 and Allen had been together since about 2010.
Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Inspector Andy Bateman, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "I feel enormously sorry for the parents of Karl Bloxham and for his sister and friends. I'm also conscious that he had children from a previous relationship and I'm very sorry they have been deprived of him.
"Today's events won't bring him back but I would hope that Allen is able to complete treatment in prison and have time to reflect upon her actions."
