Former Army officer Jeremy Green sentenced after brutal killing of York estate agent

07/04/2014

Jeremy Green, ex public schoolboy and former Army officer, was today sentenced to a whole life term and will serve 34 years in prison for murder and 24 years for attempted murder, to run concurrently, after pleading guilty to killing estate agent Nicole Waterhouse and attempting to murder her friend and flatmate at their flat in York in October 2013.

Patrick Gallagher, reviewing lawyer with CPS Yorkshire and Humberside said:

"This was an horrific crime - an appalling and brutal attack on two defenceless women in their own home. Nicole Waterhouse had her life tragically cut short, and her flatmate and friend Karen Browne suffered life-threatening injuries which she was extremely lucky to survive.  

"Jeremy Green's despicable actions have deprived a family of a much-loved daughter, and forever changed the life of her friend. He has now pleaded guilty to murder and attempted murder, and has been sentenced to 34 years for murder and  24 years for attempted murder, to be served concurrently. Our thoughts remain with the friends and families of these two young women, and we hope that the sentence handed down today gives them some measure of comfort."
