A Croydon, South London 34 year old woman was fatally stabbed by her husband over a Facebook posting; and the crime landed him in jail for life.
Emma Forrester changed her status to 'single' on the social network's online profile that she formulated for herself.
Hubby Wayne Forrester took offence and told police that what Emma had done only days following his moving out, devastated him.
It was on February 18 that the out of control Wayne attacked his wife by stabbing her with a kitchen knife and meat cleaver. The Old Bailey was given the gruesome details about Wayne Forrester, who pleaded guilty to murder and must serve a minimum 14 year sentence.
Judge Brian Barker heard how Wayne was high on cocaine and alcohol in the early hours when he attacked the mother of two children. Waking neighbours, Emma, who was employed as a payroll administrator screamed as she was repeatedly stabbed in her neck and head. It happened as she slept and he also beat her, tearing out her hair.
Insanely jealous, Wayne imagined his wife was having an affair and the court heard that the couple had a 15 year long volatile relationship. BBC reported Wayne told police, "Emma and I had just split up. She forced me out. She then posted messages on an internet website telling everyone she had left me and was looking to meet other men. I loved Emma and felt totally devastated and humiliated about what she had done to me."
The victim's sister and parents have been devastated and through a victim impact statement they asked what on earth could Emma have done to deserve receiving such a brutal callous attack.
