ENGLAND-Aubrey Padi broke into his ex wifes home and brutally murdered her. He was jailed on Tuesday, sentenced to 23 years.

Ms. Padi then saw her estranged husband attempt to flee out the front door, however he ended up turning around, going upstairs and stabbing her multiple times. Afterwards, he told the friend to call 911 as he left the home. Ms. Padi was taken to the hospital and died shortly after arriving.
According to Metro, 911 received a call saying “she deserved it”.
Leading Up To The Murder
Aside from the couple’s break up in February, there’s no explanation as to why he felt this way. However, according to Daily Mail, Richard Pratt, QC said on July 6 the day befoer her murder-Mr. Padi had punched Mrs. Padi in the face when she wouldn’t let him use her mobile phone in her car”. Two weeks earlier she caught him going through voice mail messages in her phone.
On the night he punched her, he apologized via text, ending one of the texts saying, “This is the last time you have disrespected me”. So there were vivid red flags leading up to the murder. Unfortunately, Mrs. Padi was not protected effectively, in time.
