Stefan Mayne from Bournemouth, has been convicted of murdering 25-year-old Jennifer Williams following a trial at Winchester Crown Court.

He was today – Friday 20 May 2016 – handed a life sentence and told he would have to serve a minimum of 27 years before being considered for parole.

The court heard that Jennifer was attacked on Saturday 20 June 2015 in her one-bedroomed house in Colehill Crescent.

She had been stabbed eight times in her back, neck, right breast, left thigh and six times across her abdomen. She also sustained multiple defence wounds on both her arms and hands.

A post mortem examination found Jennifer died from the stab wounds to her abdomen.

The court heard that sometime after February 2014, Jennifer lost her job and she set up a profile on a website advertising sexual services.

It was during the summer of 2014 that Jennifer met Mayne, 26, and he became a client of hers. After a period of time Mayne told Jennifer that he wanted their relationship to become more personal, the court heard.

In June 2015 Mayne asked Jennifer to attend a family meal to celebrate his brother’s birthday, but she declined.

On Friday 19 June 2015, Mayne repeatedly contacted Jennifer to ask if she was available the following day. She told him she was but asked him to stop harassing her.

The following afternoon – Saturday 20 June – Mayne visited Jennifer in her home.

Neighbours reported hearing shouting and screaming and when they went outside they discovered Jennifer collapsed on the floor, covered in blood.
