    GUILTY UK - Diane Stewart, 47, found dead, Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire, 25 June 2010 *arrest in 2020*

    I'm pleased that Diane has had justice, but sad that the media have swiftly moved the focus back to Helen. Why was he left free to kill again? A valid question, but here's another: Why did he have to kill a famous woman before anyone looked twice at the death of his "ordinary" wife?

    GUILTY UK - Arthur Labinjo Hughes, 6, killed, dad & friend arrested, June 2020 #3

    Emma Tustin didn't "just" kill a child. She killed a child while his mother was in prison. No matter how long her sentence is, it's going to feel like a lifetime.

    UK - Arthur Labinjo Hughes, 6, killed, dad & friend arrested, June 2020

    This pathetic man-baby had no business raising any child, much less a child traumatised by his mother's imprisonment. Of course Arthur lashed out. You can't expect a six-year-old to know how to manage his emotions. His dad was the one with power and responsibility, and yet he thinks HE'S the...

    Unfortunately I think they do sound like things a child might say in extreme distress. The report of him calling out to a dog just about finished me :(

    I was a little surprised that social services weren't keeping an eye on this poor child, considering that his mum is in prison for manslaughter. I thought children of prisoners would be flagged up for extra support, but maybe not. It's also possible that he fell through the cracks due to...

    Even though it's important this poor child's voice is heard (literally, in this case), I wish I hadn't read details from the trial. They'll haunt me for a long time :(

    GUILTY UK - Nicola Fellows, 10, Karen Hadaway, 9, Moulsecoomb, Brighton, 9 Oct 1986

    This may be a daft question, but did Jennifer Johnson drastically change her appearance at some point? When I first saw the photos from outside her trial, I thought they were of a black woman (she isn't).

    Pretty much everyone who lives a normal lifespan will lose both parents, in fact. The suggestion that grief could turn someone into a psychopathic killer is bizarre and, frankly, offensive. Are Sarah's loved ones at risk of becoming murderers now?

    Hiring a car is fairly common among Londoners who don't own one, but need one for a specific journey. Back before Covid there were a few "rent-by-the-hour" services like Zipcar that advertised heavily on the Tube. I agree it's an odd thing to do if you have your own vehicle, though.

    About a third of marriages in the UK end in divorce, so many people have stepmothers. And men are perfectly capable of hating and harming women without any particular woman in their life having done something to "deserve" it.

    I think that kind of thing would normally be handled by an internal enquiry to begin with (and it would probably take longer than this to come to light). But I could be wrong.

    The guy I mentioned had pictures of himself with my husband's stepmother, too. You don't have to be someone's partner to take a photo with them, nor do photos self-destruct when a relationship ends.

    I just wanted to comment on posts stating the media have "confirmed" a certain person to be her partner. When my husband's stepmother disappeared while visiting Jamaica a few years ago (she was eventually found to have been murdered by an employee working on a house she owned there), some...
