Bicester killing: Mother of Janee Parsons in tribute
The mother of a woman found fatally stabbed at a house has described her as a hard worker with "high aspirations".
Janee Parsons, 31, was found at her home in Lucerne Avenue, Bicester, Oxfordshire, on Saturday. Despite attempts to revive her, she later died in hospital.
Her mother Mary Brady said: "She always wanted to be the best and smartest at everything she did."
Mrs Parsons' husband Andrew Parsons, 38, has been charged with murder.
He is due to appear at Oxford Crown Court on 11 February.
'Be the best'
Mrs Brady said in a statement that her US-born daughter was a "wonderful mother" to her two children Owen, eight, and Max, five.
"Janee made me laugh and cry and was one of the brightest lights in my life," she said.
"From the early age of three, Janee had aspirations of grandness. She always wanted to be the best and smartest at everything she did.
"She very rarely took no for an answer and her attention to detail was easily seen through her children and her career."
