Man stabs girlfriend 83 times

A jealous boyfriend who stabbed his partner 83 times with four different knives after wrongly accusing her of having an affair has been jailed for life.

Cornelius Brown, 23, tortured and killed 30-year-old Jade Riley-Ward in the kitchen of her house in Somercotes, Derbyshire, in September last year.

Brown then called his mother and asked her to come to the house where, still covered in his girlfriend's blood, he begged her to kill him because he 'wasn't man enough to do it.'

Nottingham Crown Court heard that Jade and Brown had known each other since childhood, as Jade had been his babysitter, and they started a relationship in January 2012.

But Brown's 'jealous streak' soon became apparent and nine days before her death, Jade sent Brown a text message saying she 'wanted space'.

In a jealous rage, Brown became convinced that Jade was having an affair behind his back.
