A HUSBAND who admitted killing his estranged wife has been jailed for life.

Craig Woodhall appeared at Sheffield Crown Court today (Friday) where he was sentenced to life in prison, serving a minimum of term of 18-and-a-half years.

The 41-year-old’s victim, mum-of-three Victoria Woodhall, was stabbed multiple times on March 29 in a ‘brutal and sustained attack’ carried out in their Middlecliffe street.

Detective Inspector Ben Wood said: “Once more I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Victoria’s family and friends, as they try to process the loss of their loved one.
