A man has been jailed for at least 16 years after stabbing his girlfriend to death at a Bedfordshire house where eight children were playing.

Jordan Quailey murdered mother-of-six Christine Peters, 31, in a row at their home in Bedford, on 29 April last year.

Quailey, 30, left her body on a sofa and told the children she was asleep, Luton Crown Court heard.

He was handed the life sentence and minimum tariff after being convicted of murder.

Quailey was father to four of Ms Peters’ six children, all under the age of 10.

On the morning of her death she was also looking after a friend’s two children.

The court heard Quailey and Ms Peters, who lived in Wadsworth Court, Bedford, had a volatile relationship and there were incidents of domestic violence.
