A "bullying and violent" new bride has been jailed for life after she was convicted of murdering her solicitor husband.

Sharon Edwards, 42, stabbed to death criminal defence lawyer David Edwards, 51, at their home in Chorley, Lancashire, just two months after they married in Las Vegas.

Jailing her at Manchester Crown Court for a minimum of 20 years, Mr Justice William Davis told the defendant she had "robbed people of a decent man".
