A 22-year-old man has been jailed for 14 years after he admitted murdering a Polish woman in Norwich, then hiding her body beneath a bed.

Magdalena Januszeska, 34, had been strangled and was found at a house in Copenhagen Way, Norwich, on 25 January.

Aaron O'Brien, of the same address, had denied murder and was facing a retrial after a jury failed to reach a verdict in July this year.

But he pleaded guilty at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday.

Det Ch Insp Jes Fry, of Norfolk Police, said after the sentencing: "O'Brien appeared to live a selfish, hedonistic lifestyle and used Magdalena with no regard for her feelings.

"There was no need for him to use such excessive force or to cause so much damage to her body.

"Her murder was a tragic waste of life and my thoughts are with her family, who have been deeply upset by her death."
