Killed his wife Caroline Mobbs at 7 Enoch Court, Goodmans Yard, london.

He said 'My wife was out all night, and I saw her wife a policeman - one of the Metropolitan police. It happened through that and her being out the best part of the night before. She took up the knife first, the white handled knife. I took the knife out of her hand and cut her throat with it. I then took my child and kissed it, and then cut my own throat with another knife.'

Not sure of the conviction but cant find any executions.
