Victim died in 'violent and aggressive attack'

A 44-year-old woman has been given life imprisonment for the murder of her partner. Maxine Oliver was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court for 17 and a half years following the "violent and aggressive attack" that led to the death of Karl Jones.

"A jury has today found Maxine Oliver guilty of the murder of Karl Jones. The victim died as a consequence of a violent and aggressive attack carried out by the defendant during a fit of anger in the home they shared.

"The jurors were in no doubt that the intention was to kill Mr Jones and therefore have convicted the defendant of this brutal crime. A just outcome has been achieved and our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time.”

– Laura Witten, District Crown Prosecutor from CPS South East
