Killer sentenced to death for killing ex-girlfriend in Huddersfield downtown – latest news

A man who fatally stabbed a Leeds student in Huddersfield town centre is due to be sentenced this afternoon (Tuesday).

Paul Crowther, 36, of Elm Way, Birstall, admitted unlawfully killing Bethany Fields at a hearing last month.

The 21-year-old victim, who was from Bramley, was found with stab wounds on Fitzwilliam Street on September 12 last year.

Crowther, who is remanded in custody in Newton Lodge Fieldhead Hospital in Wakefield, was deemed fit to plead after doctors carried out psychiatric assessments.

He denied murder and his pleas were accepted by the Crown Prosecution Service.

Crowther, who is remanded in custody in Newton Lodge Fieldhead Hospital in Wakefield, is due to appear in a dock in Leeds Crown Court at noon for the sentencing hearing.

The hearing is due to last the rest of the afternoon.
