‘She’s ‘quite gullible’ – Ex-husband of 72-year-old British gran married to Nigerian husband, 27, claims

 

The ex-husband of Angela Nwachukwu – the 72-year-old British gran who spent £20,000 trying to get a visa for her 27-year-old Nigerian husband – expressed concerns that she was “being scammed”.

Donald Neate, 71, described the grandmother-of-six as “gullible” as she continues to fight for her husband – who is 45 years her junior – to be allowed into the country.

Anglea, from Dorset, has been married for three months after her now-husband CJ added her on Facebook and messaged her to compliment her on her profile picture.

Donald, who separated from Angela 18 years ago, told the Daily Mail: “The first time I knew about it was when I read the papers. She has been scammed by a man who just wants to get into the country.”

He also expressed concern that she would have to deal with the consequences of her actions.

Angela insists CJ is her soulmate, and since they married has spent £20,000 visiting him and trying to get him into the UK.

The gran of six was ­devastated when CJ was denied a visa – but says their marriage is solid despite the 4,000 miles between them.

Angela, a retired taxi driver, told The Sun: “CJ is the most caring man any woman could want to be with.

“He makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. I know in my heart we belong together and we won’t stop fighting until we can be together as husband and wife. We won’t let this break us.

“After the wedding, I found it hard leaving CJ. I knew I’d see him again soon but my family visa application was rejected.

“I was so determined to get him a visa I hired lawyers to fight for us. I’ve since visited him twice.

“We’ve spent a combined £20,000 trying to see each other. I’ve used my savings and he has gradually paid me back half.”

Donald was Angela’s first husband but she has since had a second marriage that lasted 16 years, and was then single for six months before she was contacted out of the blue by CJ.

 

Female prison officer, 27, jailed for making hundreds of calls and texts to young inmate

A female prison officer who used a “dirty phone” as she made hundreds of calls and texts with an inmate at a youth offenders unit has been jailed .

Chelsea Blackwell, 27, exchanged more than 850 messages with the 21-year-old man during their inappropriate relationship between July 12 and August 6 last year.

 

Around 115 calls, some lasting more than two hours, were also made, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

After the male inmate’s phone was seized following a cell search at Aylesbury Young Offenders Institution in Buckinghamshire, Blackwell used a second “dirty phone” to make five calls.

 

She also wrote four letters that were discovered in his cell, and more were found at her home in Bootle, Merseyside.

A forensic handwriting report concluded there was “very strong evidence” Blackwell had written all of them.

The inmate had been jailed for seven years for wounding with intent.

Last month Blackwell pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court to misconduct in a public office, and on Thursday she was sentenced to eight months imprisonment.

Blackwell, who had been a prison officer at the institution since 2015, pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office on July 20.

Uncle, 27, found guilty of murder after giving his niece, 14, a gun which she then used to shoot and kill another teenager over a Facebook dispute

A 27-year-old man has been convicted of murder after he gave his 14-year-old niece a revolver, which she then used to kill another teenager over a Facebook dispute.

A jury found him guilty of murder in the killing of the teen girl rejecting a claim by his defense attorney that the man was only trying to protect his niece when he brought a revolver to the confrontation that ended with Endia Martin dead.

Donnell Flora, 27, was found guilty of first-degree murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery charges in the death of 14-year-old Endia, who Cook County prosecutors say was shot by Flora’s niece outside a home in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood in April 2014.

The defense rested Friday, with Flora testifying that he brought the gun to the confrontation but never intended for the weapon to end up in his niece’s hands. The shooting suspect, whom the Tribune is not naming because she has been charged as a juvenile, is now 16 and has yet to stand trial.

In closing arguments Saturday at the Leighton Criminal Court Building, prosecutors argued that had it not been for Flora, the .38-caliber revolver would have never arrived to the scene, and Endia would still be alive. He therefore had to be held accountable for his actions, said Assistant State’s Attorney Barbara Bailey.
“Life is precious. No one knows that more than the family of Endia Martin. No one knows that more than the defendant,” Bailey said.
Instead of protecting his niece from gun violence, Flora, who has used a wheelchair since a 2010 shooting left him paralyzed from the waist down, made her part of the cycle of violence, Bailey said.
“He became her provider — the provider of a handgun,” Bailey said. “When there were about 1,000 other options that could’ve been taken by an adult, he chose to continue the cycle.”

In arguing that Flora should be found not guilty, defense attorney Joel Brodsky brought up the role of self-defense in the case, claiming Flora’s only intention in involving the gun in the confrontation was to protect his niece. Brodsky said the niece’s rival, Lanekia Reynolds, who was also Endia’s best friend and a witness to the killing who testified during the trial, had posted Facebook threats to Flora’s niece.

“These were not mere threats,” Brodsky said. “They were ‘I’m going to kill you. I’m going to out you in the ground next to your dad.'”
Flora’s “only intent was to protect his niece,” Brodsky said.
“It was not the brightest idea he ever had. But it doesn’t change the fact that that was his intent.”
But Assistant State’s Attorney Athena Farmakis told jurors not to consider the self-defense argument because while Flora’s niece had the revolver to the confrontation, Reynolds was armed with a chain with a lock.
“This, versus this?” Farmakis asked the jury, holding the lock in one hand and the revolver in the other. The lock couldn’t possibly cause as much bodily harm as the gun, she said.
Endia’s friends and family members were in court for the closing arguments, and sat still for the daylong proceedings, silently looking on.

The case went to the jury Saturday after hours of closing arguments, with jurors starting deliberations at 3:38 p.m. and coming back with their verdict just after 5:30 p.m.
After the verdict was read, as the jury left the room, Flora began rocking back and forth in his wheelchair and briefly put his head down.
Farmakis said her office was pleased with the verdict.
“We do believe that justice was done,” Farmakis said.
After the verdict, Brodsky said he planned to appeal the jury’s determination. He said he thinks “second-degree murder or child endangerment” would’ve been more appropriate for his client.
“It’s a very difficult thing to see the body of a dead 14-year old girl … and not want to make somebody have to pay for that,” he said of the jury’s decision.
