Peterborough woman guilty of murder

A Peterborough woman has been found guilty of murdering her long-term partner by stabbing him in the throat with a kitchen knife.


Kim Chapman, 51, attacked Paul Delo at their home in Heath Row, Dogsthorpe, Peterborough, on July 27 last year.

She was found guilty this afternoon (February 4) by a jury at Cambridge Crown Court. She will be sentenced tomorrow morning.

On the day of the killing Mr Delo and Chapman had been drinking and smoking cannabis at the home of a couple who lived nearby.

Mr Delo, who was 38, had been asked to leave after he made "inappropriate comments" and the couple got into a violent argument after arriving home.

Police arrived to find Mr Delo lying on the pavement. He was taken to Peterborough District Hospital but later died.

Detective Inspector Dave Grierson, who led the police investigation, said: "The relationship between Kim Chapman and Paul Delo was a turbulent one and blighted by drink and drugs.

"On July 27 last year both had been drinking and smoking cannabis and another argument erupted, this time with fatal consequences.

"I hope the conclusion of this case allows Mr Delo's family and friends to move on."
