According to Sky News, a 23-year-old man from Essex has admitted to killing his 19-year-old girlfriend from Canada.
Ashley Wadsworth was found murdered in a home in Chelmsford, England in February. She and the killer, Jack Sepple, reportedly met on a dating app.
On February 1 this year, emergency services attended a private address in the city following reports of unrest.
Wadsworth was pronounced dead at the scene.
The inquest concluded that the teenager died from a stab wound to the chest.
She had then been living in Chelmsford since November 2021, having left Canada to be with her boyfriend.
Admitted the act
A psychiatrist assessed Sepple as sane at the time of the crime.
During a hearing on Wednesday, the author clearly stated: “I am guilty.”
– As soon as you confess to murder, there is only one sentence that can be imposed, and that is life, said judge Christopher Morgan afterwards.
Sepple has been remanded in custody until a sentencing date is set.
– At the very least, today’s hearing means Ashley’s family will be spared the burden of a trial. I hope after today they can take comfort in knowing that Sepple is spending a lot of time behind bars, an Essex police investigator reportedly said, according to Canadian newspaper CBC.
