Janee Parsons death: Husband guilty of murder

A man has been jailed for life for stabbing to death his wife as she was getting ready for a weekend away with her new boyfriend.

Andrew Parsons, 38, attacked Janee Parsons, 31, in their Bicester home in front of their young son.

The jury at Oxford Crown Court heard how the attack in December 2012 was captured on a dictation machine left under a bed by Parsons so as to listen in on his wife.

Judge Patrick Eccles QC told him: "You were overwhelmed, in my judgement, by jealous rage".
