Evil! Mom Drowns 3-Year Old Beautiful Daughter After Husband Divorced Her

A housewife who feared her husband was having an affair at work drowned their three-year-old daughter in a bath of water and then gave herself a massive overdose of insulin, a jury was told.

Claire Colebourn researched painless suicide and drowning methods on the internet just a short while before murdering her child at the family home, a court heard on Thursday.

The 35-year-old mother appeared before a High Court judge as a prosecutor Kerry Maylin opened the case involving the murder of Bethan.

The court heard that Colebourn had endured a painful divorce from her company director husband Michael Colebourn after she became convinced he was having an affair with a woman named Kelly, a financial director at their company, Ms Justice Johannah Cutts heard.


In the weeks following their separation in September 2017, the mother sent emotionally charged emails to Mr Colebourn's work colleagues and over Facebook, accusing him of cheating and controlling the family's finances.

Ms Maylin told the jury that on October 10 Mrs Colebourn had a new IT system installed in her home, following her husband's departure, after she became paranoid he was continuing to snoop and monitor her through the previous set up.

The jury was told that inn the week approaching her daughter's death she began to Google increasingly disturbing and morbid websites, while her daughter remained at pre-school, the prosecutor said.

Mrs Colebourn sobbed in the dock as the prosecutor listed websites such as 'How to kill by suicide', 'What is the least painful way to commit suicide?', and 'Lost all hope.'

Ms Maylin told the court how she was Google searching for dating websites, relationship counselling and her previous husband on the day before her daughter's death.

Shortly before her daughter's death Colebourn was searching for euthanasia, the jury heard and on October 15, just days before her death, three-year-old Bethan enjoyed a day out with her father, having lunch together and kissing and hugging goodbye.

For Mr Colebourn, it would be the last time he saw his daughter alive, Ms Maylin said.

The jury of six men and six women at Winchester Crown Court heard that a post mortem examination later appeared to confirm the cause of Bethan's death as drowning by submersion in water.

The trial continues.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
