A grieving husband said “I miss being a daddy” as his wife was today jailed for life for murdering their three-year-old daughter.
In a powerful statement, read out after the sentencing of Claire Colebourn, her estranged husband Michael said there was “not a second in the day that goes by” that he thinks about his daughter Bethan.
Mr Colebourn, a chief executive of a luxury marine interior firm, attended Winchester Crown Court today to see his wife jailed for life with a minimum of 18 years and condemned Colebourn for making “endless unfounded allegations” about him.
The court heard Colebourn, 36, drowned Bethan in the bath after wrongly believing Mr Colebourn was cheating on her.
After she was sentenced, he expressed his anguish in a statement read outside the court by Hampshire Constabulary.
