A man who stabbed his estranged wife to death has been jailed for life.

Valdomar Da Concericao Silva, 38, of Belvedere Park, Dungannon, had admitted murdering his wife, Luisa, in August 2010.

Silva, originally from East Timor, was acquitted at Enniskillen Crown Court of attempting to kill his boss, with whom his wife was having a relationship.

The judge told Silva he would fix the minimum tariff he must serve of his life sentence next month.
