Family's 'suffering' as killer could be moved to area

The daughter of a woman killed by a man suffering with paranoid schizophrenia says her family are facing further trauma by the possibility that the Ministry of Justice may move her mother's killer to a medium secure mental health ward near their home - and in time even grant him escorted leave.

52-year-old Karen Welsh, a nurse from Cardiff, was killed at her home in March 2010 after she befriended a fellow patient while being treated for depression in hospital.

Her daughter Joanne Welsh told our reporter Tom Sheldrick she feels her views have been ignored.

She added "I don't begrudge him being cared for - I just don't understand why it has to be in South Wales."
