Jury find Langham man guilty of attempted murder of Oakham woman
A jury has found a Langham man guilty of attempted murder.
After just over six hours of deliberation, the dozen men and women at Leicester Crown Court found 48-year-old Robert Truscott guilty of attempted murder.
Almost a year ago to the day, Truscott went to the home of Emma Wolfenden in Bullfinch Close, Oakham, while she was with a 26-year-old man she had met on the dating website, Tinder.
Truscott, of Lowther Close, Langham, is accused of stabbing Miss Wolfenden 10 times.
He had previously admitted injuring the younger man and being in possession of a weapon, and at lunchtime today the jury returned a not guilty verdict to a charge of Truscott wounding him with intent.
Shortly afterwards, they returned a verdict of guilty of attempted murder.
Throughout his trial, Truscott has said he could not remember stabbing Miss Wolfenden on January 21, 2021. She died later in the year, in circumstances that are not linked to what happened that day.
