Daughter 'tortured' following mother's death

The daughter of a woman killed in 2010 has said more consideration has been given to her killer than to her or her family.

Nurse Karen Welsh was strangled by John Constantine at her home in Thornhill, Cardiff.

Joanne Welsh has now expressed her anger after she was told the Ministry of Justice would review the transfer of her mother's killer to a medium secure mental health ward in South Wales:

In six months' time I could pass that man in the street, what about my mental health? Consideration is being given to the health of a man that has taken someone's life over me and my family who have been constantly tortured for years...Although I have been told that the decision to move him is being reviewed, I have not been told that the decision has changed. If the decision does not change, then I have been given false hope.

– Joanne Welsh, Karen Welsh's daughter.
