Pensioner jailed for 18 years for husband’s murder

A retired accountant has been jailed for a minimum of 18 years after being found guilty of murdering her husband following an argument over a birthday meal.

Penelope Jackson, aged 66, stabbed David Jackson three times at their home in Parsonage Road in Berrow, Somerset on 13 February.

The jury at Bristol Crown Court listened to a 999 call, where Mr Jackson could be heard screaming as a knife was apparently driven into him.

She had already admitted manslaughter, but denied murder.
