Michael Bird admits killing partner Janine Tiley

A man from Exeter has admitted killing his long-term partner.

Michael Bird, 53, of Wonford Street, admitted manslaughter due to loss of control, but denied murdering Janine Tiley.

The mother-of-two died from multiple stab wounds following an incident at the property in mid July.

At Exeter Crown Court, prosecutor Richard Crabb said that the plea was acceptable. Bird is expected to be sentenced on Monday.
