A woman who stabbed a young mother to death is facing a life jail term after being convicted of her murder this afternoon. There were shouts of "yes" when the jury foreman announced the verdict on Alwen Jones, 24.

The mother-of-two had plunged a kitchen knife into 31-year-old Emma Jones at the entrance to a block of flats at the village of Penygroes, near Caernarfon, last December. She later told police that the victim deserved what happened.

The judge at Caernarfon crown court remanded her in custody overnight until she is sentenced tomorrow.
