Man (55) Sentenced To Life For Killing Secret Lover

A man has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 19 years for killing his secret lover in Jersey.

Jamie Lee Warn was convicted of murdering Zsuzsanna Besenyei and perverting the course of justice by lying to police to cover up what he'd done.

The Hungarian woman's body was found washed up at Le Pulec Bay in May last year.

The Crown Prosecution told the Royal Court that Warn killed the 37 year old days earlier in a row over money, dumped the remains at low tide, before getting rid of the car at La Haule Slip to give the impression that she'd killed herself.

Warn was found guilty of all charges after a near two week trial.

The 55 year old is appealing against his conviction. Leave to appeal has been granted and will be heard at a later date.

"Zsuzanna came to live in Jersey seven years ago, she had a good job, she had friends and her family thought she would be safe here. Warn went to considerable lengths to cover his tracks and avoid detection.

"The sentence today, shows the gravity of the crime, and although nothing will bring Zsuzsanna back, we hope this result will go some way to helping the Besenyei family to heal and come to terms with life without Zsuzsanna." - Acting Chief Inspector Craig Jackson.
