A primary school teacher has admitted killing her partner whose tied up body was found buried in the garden.

The remains of Nicholas Billingham, 42, were found at a home in Moore Street, Northampton in March 2022, four and a half months after he was last seen.

 
had she finished giving her evidence? had her defence rested by the time the plug was pulled?
From memory, she had finished and there there were endless psychologists etc who gave evidence too.

Worth going back a few pages on this thread and read up the posts from from a year ago, as we put links to all the relevant news articles, when the first trial was taking place
 
A primary school teacher stabbed her cheating boyfriend in the neck in a 'chilling domestic execution'...

Mr Davies said:

'She was thinking about what time was best to do it, whether he would be snoring, but she knew or visualised it would be by stabbing him ''left to right, down slight right''.
And that's what she did - she stabbed him in his jugular vein in his neck

She murdered him in their bedroom late on 1 November. The clean-up started as early as 01.07am on 2 November.

she bought multiple cleaning products, ultra heavy duty bin bags, a new mattress, bedding, clothing, wall art and mirrors.

'This is considered, controlled, conduct that is on the one hand intrinsically practical, and on the other indulgent.

'It is the more so given she must literally have watched her partner bleed to death in front of her.

'The way he was wrapped, with cables, hosepipes and plastic bags, building detritus, afforded him no dignity in death. It shows utter contempt. She cannot have forgotten this.

'She now claims to have forgotten most of the month of November 2021- the prosecution invites you to reject that claim. It is another instrumental lie designed to avoid conviction for murder.'

In his opening speech to the jury, defence barrister Andrew Wheeler, KC, said: 'This case is not as straightforward as the prosecution suggest.
Fiona Beal is a lady of good character, a partner to Nick Billingham for 17 years, a hardworking and throughly liked schoolteacher.

'What this case is really about is her state of mind at the time she carried out the act.
What caused that dramatic change, what was the catalyst that led to these very tragic circumstances?

'You will hear evidence Ms Beal suffered from mental health issues but also on top of that she was in a coercive and controlling relationship with Mr Billingham.

'He was physically domineering and over the years he wore her down until she was quite literally broken.

'You will also hear that Ms Beal was unable to recall any details about what happened.

'Loss of control can provide a partial defence to murder and in this case we will be suggesting that Ms Beal's loss of control arose from events relating to the ongoing conduct of and treatment of her by Mr Billingham.

"There is no evidence she ever did a PCR test. Her actions in the next 10 days are wholly inconsistent with having the exhausting effects of Covid which she was claiming to be experiencing. She murdered him in their bedroom late on November 1. The clean-up started as early as 01.07am on November 2. Using her dead partner's account, and then hers on Amazon, she bought multiple cleaning products, including for Venetian blinds, a new mop and bucket, ultra heavy duty bin bags, a new mattress, bedding, clothing, wall art and mirrors.

"It is the more so given she must literally have watched her partner bleed to death in front of her. Later that same day she changes a Tesco order, itself already containing multiple cleaning products, to add three rolls of duct tape. At 2.19pm she purchased heavy duty long gardening gloves, a stainless steel digging spade and a galvanised incinerator bin garden leaves wood burner. To state the obvious, this was not for burning leaves."

Just thinking about what she had to clean up makes me feel exhausted!! Takes me enough time to do a quick dust and hoover.
