A woman who was found guilty of asking a former neighbour to kill her partner has been jailed for six years.

Kelly Cliff, 40, of Walsall, had numerous affairs during her 22-year relationship with Carl Gallagher and wanted him killed, Wolverhampton Crown Court heard.

She asked 45-year-old Dalton Bowen to help her, but instead he told police of her plans.

The mother-of-two denied the plot but was found guilty of soliciting murder.

Speaking after the case, Det Con Jim Connell said it had been "an unusual case".
