Jeweller Elizabeth Hart-Browne, 27, broke down in tears at the Old Bailey today as she was cleared of murdering her violent boyfriend Stephen Rayner.
The mother-of-two stabbed Stephen Rayner, 25, three times with a kitchen knife after drinking at a party on the night of 17 September last year…
Jurors heard she had knifed Mr Rayner twice before [my emphasis] – but acquitted Ms Hart-Browne of murder at the Old Bailey today after deliberating for 14 hours and 55 minutes.
She claimed she had picked up the blade in the course of a violent struggle when they were entwined like a ‘twisted pretzel’ and ‘forgot’ she was holding it when the blows were struck.
