Janee Parsons: Jury Hears 'Murder' Tape


A recording device placed under Janee Parsons' bed by her
husband captured the moment he stabbed her to death, a court hears.

Janee Parsons died on December 1










Harrowing audio of a young mother's last moments as she was
allegedly punched and stabbed to death by her husband has been played to a
murder trial jury.

Members of 31-year-old beautician Janee Parsons' family left the public
gallery of Oxford Crown Court as the recordings - captured on a secret dictation
machine installed by Andrew Parsons to snoop on his adulterous wife - were
played.

Some of the jurors sat with their hands over their mouths, while a member of
court staff also began sobbing as the trial heard the attack unfold - including
the desperate pleas of the couple's young son, begging his father to stop.

The 38-year-old defendant, who denies murdering his wife at their Oxfordshire
home last December, left the dock at the adjournment with tears streaming down
his face, wiping them away with the back of his arm.

The attack followed a period of arguments between the couple after
American-born Mrs Parsons told her husband she wanted a separation, the court
was told.

The trial had previously heard how Parsons and his wife decided to continue
living in their family home together until after Christmas, so as not to leave
their children with unhappy memories of the festive season.

But Parsons had become angry, the court heard, accusing his wife of lying to
him about her private life when she told him later that she was seeing another
man, business associate Daniel Hansens.

Parsons had previously fastened the dictation machine underneath his
estranged partner's bed in the hope of discovering details about her private
life, jurors were told.

The device also captured the violent attack, which prosecutor Miranda Moore
QC said began with an argument, followed by Parsons punching his wife to the
floor, and then fetching a large knife with which he delivered more than a dozen
blows.

The dictation machine had earlier picked up an argument between Parsons and
his wife.

The trial heard Parsons, who worked in the plumbing business, say: "If I was
trying to find out if you were cheating on me, I would probably be
investigative, but you're out in the open. I don't want to be hearing
details."

His wife replied: "If you went away, I would miss you. But that doesn't mean
I want to be married to you again."

Soon after the fatal attack, prosecutors said Parsons left the scene to take
his son to school friend and neighbour, Andrew Thompson's house before returning
to dump his wife's body in the bathroom and calling the police.

In a statement, Mr Thompson described how Parsons "didn't look right", and
had been behaving differently in the days before it.

Mr Thompson's statement read: "I said 'Is everything OK?' He didn't look
right, his face was white. He said something like 'Me and Janee are having some
problems that we need to sort out'.

"I said I needed to leave by 12.30pm, but he said 'I'll be back before
then'."

Mr Thompson was contacted by police an hour later when they asked him to
continue to look after the boy, but did not disclose any details about Mrs
Parsons' death.

I hadn't read anything about it before either. Why did he not take away the recording tape. As you say, poor soul, he has lost his mother and father, hope he has Relatives who will look after him.

The idiot was probably in such a rage, he forgot all about it.
I wonder why we've never heard of this before?
Has anyone else heard of this case?

I hadn't just had a look at the report and the trial is in Oxford Crown Court.
