A jealous man who decapitated his long-term partner at their east London flat before flushing her head down the toilet has been jailed for life.
Dempsey Nibbs, 69, killed Judith Nibbs, his partner of 30 years, after he became angry when she admitted to having affairs.
The crane driver, from the Charles Estate in Hoxton, must serve a minimum of 21 years.
Ms Nibbs was attacked with an iron bar in April 2014, the Old Bailey heard.
Nibbs, who has cancer, claimed he had acted in self defence, but the Recorder of London Nicholas Hilliard QC told him: “I’m sure you don’t regret your wife’s death save for its effect on your own comfort and well-being.”
Defence lawyer Ian Henderson QC told the court that Nibbs acknowledged that his ill health meant he would die in jail.
