Having being a carer for Pam Batten’s husband before he died, 52-year old Nigerian woman, Abosede Adeyinka knew there were bags of cash hidden around the family’s home.
Armed with a hammer and a knife, Abosede, with the intention to steal £31,000 covered her face with a cloth, and visited Pam, who lived alone.
Abosede hit her with a hammer twice on her head and stabbed her with a knife on her neck.
MSN NEWS reported that when Pam told Abosede that her son would be visiting, she fled the house empty handed, however, her coat and bag was stained with Pam’s blood.
Abosede, a mother of three and a Sunday school teacher has now been sentenced to a 21-year imprisonment for attempted murder. Her family was also restrained from contacting Pam Battens.
