Maxine Oliver has been sentenced at Guildford Crown Court for the brutal murder of 37-year-old Karl Jones. Oliver, 44, received life imprisonment with a minimum tariff of 17 and a half years and had initially denied any involvement in her partner's death in March this year.
"This was a brutal attack for which Maxine Oliver has never revealed a motive or shown any remorse. The couple were known to have a volatile relationship and the length of the sentence handed down is in part due to the vulnerabilities of the victim who sustained horrific fatal injuries in this last violent attack. Today's result reflects Surrey Police's commitment to bringing offenders of domestic abuse to justice.”
