Man admits Pauline Carmichael murder
Thursday, 17 November 2016
A 38-year-old former soldier has been jailed for life after he pleaded guilty to the murder of his father's 61-year-old partner, Pauline Carmichael.
Mr Justice Treacy told Alan Norman Foster that in light of his guilty plea he would 'pronounce' the only sentence permitted by law, life imprisonment for the murder of the mum of six on February 25 last year.
The Antrim Crown Court judge, sitting in Belfast, adjourned until next month the tariff hearing to determine the minimum term Foster must serve, before he may be considered for release.
The body of Ms Carmichael, who lived at Hillside in Antrim, was found on the shores of Lough Neagh.
Meanwhile, in a separate case, a 25-year-old Antrim man has been jailed for life after he pleaded guilty to the murder of 65-year-old Randalstown takeaway owner, Wing Fu (Nelson) Cheung, in January 2015.
