A man who stabbed a woman to death in a "jealous rage" has been jailed for life for her murder.

Miriam Nyuazema, 35, was found outside her home in Shawclough Way, Rochdale in Greater Manchester following reports of a disturbance on 28 July last year.

She died in hospital from seven stab wounds to her head and upper body.

Josphat Mutekedza, 36, of no fixed address, was ordered to serve minimum of 26 years after being convicted of murder at Bolton Crown Court.

Senior Investigating Officer Duncan Thorpe said: "Josphat Mutekedza stabbed Miriam seven times in a jealous rage, causing injuries that proved fatal.

"He has now been convicted and sentenced for this senseless crime which has devastated Miriam's family."
