A man has been jailed for 17 and a half years for killing a Wisbech mum.

Kestutis Bauzys was found guilty of the murder of Dzilva Butiene yesterday (18th Oct).

Paramedics were called out to their home in Debnam Court in April.

The 48-year-old had suffered fresh bruises to her lips, face and arms.

But 46-year-old Bauzys kept telling them that his girlfriend was an alcoholic and kept falling over.

Sadly Butiene suffered a severe trauma to her stomach that lacerated her liver in two places.

Detective Inspector Alan Page, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said:

"This was a horrendous case of domestic abuse behind closed doors. Bauzys consistently lied claiming Mrs Butiene had caused her injuries herself from falling over. The expert medical evidence stated that these type of injuries would be seen either from a forceful assault, a fall from a first floor building or a high speed road collision where the victim wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

"We established that Mrs Butiene had not left the flat and that Bauzys had been the only person in her company at the time she would have received the fatal injury.

"In this case officers had not received any previous reports of domestic abuse. We would urge anyone who finds themselves in an abusive relationship, please find the courage to tell someone. You don't have to come direct to police but it's not acceptable to live with abuse."

In a statement Mrs Butiene's family said:

"Dzilva's death has left utter devastation to all her friends and family here in Lithuania, including her two sons.

"We have all been affected by her death and remain to take each day at a time."
