A man from Sandwell - who stabbed his partner to death after an argument - has been jailed for life for her murder.

55-year-old Ronald Cooke attacked Tina Billingham following an argument at their home in Granville Road, Cradley Heath on February 6th - before driving her to their local doctors.

He dragged the 54-year-old from his van into the surgery at Rowley Healthcare in Hawes Lane - telling doctors that she'd stabbed herself.

A post-mortem examination found the mother of two died from stab wounds to her stomach and chest.

Detective Inspector Harry Harrison from the force’s homicide unit, said: “Cooke was clearly a bully and was the root cause of an awful lot of misery in Tina’s life, arrogant to the end he has shown no remorse.  Men with his character traits have no place in a civilised society, he has now rightly been brought to justice.”

Cooke was convicted of murder at Wolverhampton Crown Court and will spend a minimum of 24 years in prison.
