Birmingham woman guilty of manslaughter after killing partner in knife attack
A woman from Birmingham has been found guilty of manslaughter after killing her partner in a knife-attack at a block of flats.
Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow was convicted today (Tuesday) at Birmingham Crown Court.
On Saturday, February 23 earlier this year, a delivery driver discovered the body of Gary Cunningham lying in a top floor corridor of a shared property on Frensham Way in Harborne.
Police and ambulance were called but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers conducted checks in the block and found 26-year-old Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow in one of the flats.
She told officers about the abusive relationship she was in with 29-year-old Mr Cunningham, which had allegedly resulted in many physical fights.
A blood stained knife was found in her kitchen sink and a post-mortem examination revealed Mr Cunningham died as a result of a stab wound to his left leg.
Labinjo-Halcrow, of Frensham Way, was found not guilty of murder but convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
She was remanded in custody to be sentenced on September 10.
