Anglesey man sentenced for murdering his partner
A 52-year-old man from Anglesey has been sentenced to life imprisonment at Caernarfon/Mold Crown Court for the murder of his partner.
The jury heard at the trial how Colin Milburn was convinced that his partner, Buddug Jones, was having an affair and he had been sleeping in his vehicle during the days before her death. On 22 April last year he went to the home and killed her in her bed.
Forensic evidence showed that a spot of the victim’s blood had been splattered on his clothing.
Andrew Slight of the CPS said: “Colin Milburn had convinced himself that his partner was having an affair and brutally attacked her.
“The catastrophic head injuries he inflicted proved to be fatal.
“The CPS presented strong evidence to show Milburn was responsible which resulted in his conviction.
“Our thoughts remain with Buddug’s family and friends who have suffered a terrible loss.”
Colin Milburn was sentenced on 6 January 2023 to life imprisonment and was ordered to serve a minimum of 20 years.
