Car salesman gets life for murder

A car salesman was jailed for life at the Old Bailey for stabbing and burning alive a customer for whom he had developed a 'fatal attraction'.

Winston Goulbourne, 24, of South Norwood, south London, became obsessed with Gillian Bennett, 33, a travel agent, of Streatham, south London, after she bought a Fiat Uno from the west London dealership where he worked. He killed her after she rejected him when he called at her home in the early hours in December last year.
