A Lithuanian man will be sentenced today (18th October) for murdering his girlfriend in Wisbech in April 2017.
46-year old Kestutis Bauzys killed 48-year old mother of two Dzilva Butiene in what police say was a horrendous case of domestic abuse behind closed doors.
A post mortem examination carried out by Dr Nat Cary concluded Mrs Butiene died of a trauma to the abdomen that had caused a laceration to her liver in two places.
Police say that in this case officers had not received any previous reports of domestic abuse.
They're urging anyone who finds themselves in an abusive relationship to find the courage to tell someone.
