A killer wife who knifed her lawyer husband to death just two months after their Las Vegas wedding has lost her bid to clear her name.
Sharon Edwards, 44, was given a life sentence for fatally stabbing David Edwards in August 2015.
She killed the 51-year-old solicitor at their home following a campaign of bullying, a jury found.
Edwards denied murder but was found guilty after a trial and jailed for life with a minimum term of 20 years.
She took her case to the Court of Appeal – claiming her husband walked into the knife – but three senior judges have rejected her bid to overturn her conviction, the reports.
During the initial court case, a judge described criminal defence solicitor Mr Edwards as “a respected member of the community”. He was “held in extremely high regard” by his courtroom peers, it was said.
Speaking during the sentencing hearing at Manchester Crown Court in 2016, Mr Justice William Davis told Edwards: “It is clear that was a view widely held and your bullying of him, which ended with this tragic death, has robbed people of a decent man.
“You are someone who has attacked people in the past. You have a bullying and violent nature.”
