A PENYGROES woman who stabbed another woman in the chest has been jailed for life.
A jury at Caernarfon Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday, October 10) found Alwena Eluned Jones, aged 24, guilty of killing Emma Jones, aged 31, in the doorway of a block of flats near home in Trem yr Wyddfa, Penygroes last December.
Mr Justice Griffith-Williams said Jones will serve a minimum of 18 years.
In a statement, Emma's family thanked North Wales Police for bringing her killer to justice.
They added: “Emma was a beautiful, kind and caring daughter and sister and a devoted mother to Llŷr.
“Emma lives on in our memories and no one can understand the pain and anguish we have suffered. We cope on a daily basis making a promise to Emma to try and carry on.”
Detective Sergeant Dewi Harding Jones welcomed the jury’s verdict, and extended his sympathies to Emma's family.
He said: “Alwen JONES has been found guilty of murder, something she will have to live with for the rest of her life.
“The verdict reflects the seriousness of the crime committed when she armed herself with a knife with the intention of stabbing someone.”
