One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Shropshire Man Is Jailed For Life For Murdering His Wife
Shopshire man Peter Tripp will serve at least 13 years in jail for murder.
A killer from Shropshire who stabbed his wife 24 times and then refused her pleas to call for medical help has been jailed for life.
70 year old Peter Tripp was ordered to serve a minimum term of 13 years after pleading guilty to the murder of Belen Tripp.
The pensioner, of Sixth Avenue, Ketley Bank, Telford, Shropshire, attacked his wife last November and then refused to contact the emergency services, West Mercia Police said.
Stafford Crown Court was told Mrs Tripp, aged 52, managed to dial 999 and could be heard asking her husband to summon a doctor.
Speaking after Tripp was sentenced, Detective Inspector Mark Bellamy said: "Belen Tripp suffered horrific abuse at the end of her life, at the hands of her husband.
"We hope that the jail sentence handed to Peter Tripp gives some comfort to Belen's family, who have had to come to terms with the loss of Belen in the most painful way.
"I would like to take this opportunity to commend Belen for her courage in calling for help, despite suffering tremendous abuse. In spite of her immense courage, the injuries inflicted upon her by her husband were too severe and she paid the ultimate price.
"Nobody should suffer such violence at the hands of a family member. I urge anyone suffering domestic violence and abuse to seek help."
