Angela Burkitt jailed for life over Hull murder
A woman has been jailed for life for stabbing her neighbour to death in a "revenge" attack outside a Hull flat.
Joanne Hemingway, 39, died in hospital after the stabbing on Beverley Road on 29 June.
Angela Burkitt, 53, of Beverley Road, was found guilty of murder following a trial at Hull Crown Court.
She was also convicted of intimidating a witness and will serve a minimum of 20 years in prison.
The court heard Burkitt had attacked Ms Hemingway in revenge after a dispute between the pair, which led to them being involved in a fight on Beverley Road a few days before the murder.
Ms Hemingway died from a single stab wound to the chest which was delivered with such force that the knife blade snapped off.
Burkitt told police she was acting in self-defence.
In a statement released through Humberside Police, Ms Hemmingway's family said: "Joanne had a big heart and was an integral part of a loving and supportive family unit.
"She is irreplaceable and will be deeply missed by us all and everyone who knew her."
