Charlotte Collinge jailed for 23 years for recruiting two men to murder her husband on the promise of sex
A woman has been jailed for life for recruiting two
men in a pub on the promise of sex to murder her husband.
Charlotte Collinge, 45, was jailed for a minimum of 23 years, while Stephen Shreeves, 40, and Kelvin Dale, 27, were each jailed for 18 years at Nottingham Crown Court today.
Collinge, who had the nickname “Charlotte the harlot”, met the two men in a pub before inviting them to her home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, on the promise of sex on October 8 last year.
The court heard how the two men carried out the brutal attack fuelled by alcohol and illegal drugs. Clifford Collinge was found dead in a pool of blood with 46 separate injuries on the kitchen floor of the house.
“The killing of Clifford Collinge in his own home was a truly shocking offence,” Mr Justice Colman Treacy said.
He added: "On the evidence I have heard, I'm satisfied he was a man who offered no harm to any of you and who indeed had, over a number of years, tolerated the wilful and manipulative behaviour of an unfaithful wife."
Another man, Robert Proud, 36, was cleared of murder by jurors last week.
