Thanks for posting this, Karen. I listened to the whole 1+ hour. Really well presented and insightful.
I still can't get over SaW only getting six years, especially when the judge seemed to believe she was guilty of more than she was charged with....
AW was there. And a sister of Sarah's. I don't know who the other woman was.
There were three of us waiting for the public gallery. Because three family members turned up, we weren’t allowed in. ... However, five minutes...
I have taken the day off work and am planning to go to the sentencing on Friday.

Great report, MIdge28, thank you. Such a shame we won't be able to see SaW accounting for her actions!

That all sounds fairly reasonable! Did ScW come across to you as innocent or guilty, MIdge28?
What it looked like to me, sitting a few metres away, was the reaction of somebody who had finally realised that he was going to be banged up for...
Yes, he had to admit it was him because SaW had an alibi, being at her friend's house. But he said that SaW told him to do it. He got flustered...
Yes, the latter. He said they didn't want the police or social services to get involved.
YES. Of everything that happened yesterday, this was the standout moment for me.
Is it usual for alleged murderers to have breakdowns in court?
