A 67 year old Louth woman has today (Monday September 21) admitted the murder of her long-term partner.

Lynn Stallard had previously denied the charge, but this afternoon changed her plea to guilty when she appeared before Lincoln Crown Court.

James House QC , prosecuting, said that Stallard was involved in a volatile relationship with Louis Spires, 68, and previously been subjected to emotional and physical abuse.

On the afternoon of May 15 she snapped following an argument at their home in Eastfield Road, Louth, and smothered him with either a pillow or a cushion.

Mr Spires, an alcoholic who was registered disabled, died within minutes.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned sentence to a later date and Stallard was remanded in custody.
