Warwickshire Man Jailed For Murdering Wife

16 July 2015, 18:23

A Warwickshire man will serve at least 22 years in prison after being found guilty of the murder of his estranged wife.

Owen Williams, 51, of Grizedale, Rugby, attacked Shana Cover, 34, causing serious injuries to her neck which resulted in her death, Warwickshire Police said.

Ms Cover had not been seen for a week when her body was found at her home in Morton Gardens, Rugby, on August 21 last year.

Williams was given a life sentence for the ``vicious and brutal attack'' at Warwick Crown Court today.

Detective Superintendent James Essex, who led the investigation, said: ``It is clear that Williams is an extremely controlling and dangerous individual and we welcome today's sentence.

``This was a vicious and brutal attack.

``Our thoughts are with Shana's family and friends. Nobody should have to lose a loved one in such a way. I do hope that they can find some peace from today's verdict and they can start to rebuild their lives.''

Yvonne Rose, Ms Cover's mother, said: ``I would like to take this opportunity to thank the judge, barristers and jury for their role in bringing the accused to justice.''
