Guilty verdict in Tracy Anstice murder

09/03/2012

A jury at Luton Crown Court has today, Friday, 09 March 2012, found the husband of Tracy Anstice guilty of her murder.

50-year-old Lee Anstice was sentenced to 24 years for the offence he committed in August last year when he stabbed his 37-year-old wife and mother of his child outside her parent's home in Flitwick.

Speaking after the verdict, the Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Sean O'Neil said: "While I am satisfied with today's verdict, nothing will bring Tracy back, or restore her family's faith in the world following the loss of their daughter, sister and mother in such violent and tragic circumstances."

"We know that Tracy is missed by all who knew her, but I hope that knowing the person responsible for taking her from them has been brought to justice will go some way to help them begin to rebuild their lives."

Chief Crown Prosecutor, Baljit Ubhey for Thames and Chiltern CPS said; "We hope that the conclusion of the case will help, in some small way, the family of Tracy Anstice in their struggle to come to terms with this tragic event. This family attended the trial and showed great dignity throughout the proceedings. Our thoughts are very much with them at this time."
