A man who stabbed a mother-of-two to death after she finished their relationship has been sentenced to life in prison.

Naudel Turner, 42, a health worker from Fulham, was stabbed in Bruce Grove, Tottenham, north London, on 19 March.

Dariusz Miakienko, 46, of Lordship Lane, Tottenham, was found guilty of murder at Isleworth Crown Court. He will serve a minimum of 20 years.

He stabbed her 20 times with a kitchen knife, the court heard.

'Cold and callous'

Ms Turner was followed by Miakienko after she left the GP surgery where she worked.

Witnesses heard her shout "leave me alone" before she was pushed against a fence and stabbed in the neck and body.

Police said witnesses reported seeing Miakienko standing near her body and having a cigarette.

An off duty police officer detained Miakienko with help from members of the public.

Ms Turner died on the way to hospital.

Det Chief Insp Noel McHugh said: "Naudel was murdered simply because Miakienko could not cope with her rejection of him. He stalked her over many months.

"Miakienko is a cold and callous man who has robbed her sons of a mother and a community of a dedicated and hard working woman."
