Millionaire jailed for 17 years for murdering wife

[ via Mail Online ] 20 Dec

A millionaire businessman was yesterday jailed for life after he was convicted of stabbing his ex-wife in the heart as she wrote a diary about his intimidating behaviour.

Lawyers for Susan Workman, 55, were insisting her ex-husband Ian pay her £1.4million, and give her the couple’s £700,000 converted farmhouse near Bolton.

The car dealer claimed she lunged at him with a kitchen knife during a furious row over the divorce settlement, but yesterday a jury at Preston Crown Court convicted him of murder.

Workman, 58, was ordered to serve a minimum of 17-and-a-half years in jail. He sobbed after the verdict and as he was led to the cells turned to his sons Ben, 22, and Nick, 18, insisting: ‘I didn’t do it boys, I didn’t do it.’
