CCTV shows killer stalking ex-girlfriend moments before murder
Telegraph, 31 May 2023
A murderer who travelled more than 140 miles to try and behead his former girlfriend in an alleyway was branded a “coward” when he refused to appear in court for sentencing.
Dennis Akpomedaye, 30, used a large kitchen knife to saw at Anna Jedrkowiak’s neck after stabbing her almost 40 times in Ealing, west London, in front of her new boyfriend.
Kingston Crown Court heard how Akpomedaye had taken a coach ride from Newport South Wales two days prior to the “barbaric” and “cowardly” attack on May 29 last year.
CCTV footage played to the court showed Akpomedaye, wearing a hood and balaclava, waiting for the 21-year-old university student, known as Ania, to finish her shift at a restaurant.
