EastEnders actress admits murder

A former EastEnders actress has admitted murdering an 86-year-old woman for jewellery, which she later sold for just £61.

Karen Williamson, who was addicted to crack cocaine, battered Jean Jobson to death in the pensioner's home in Catford in February last year.

She had denied the charge and was due to stand trial, but today she changed her plea to guilty today and was sentenced to at least 24 years in prison.
