A MUM described how the domineering father of her children went on to murder his subsequent partner on the night of their wedding.
Kimberley Allcock claims that several months before Thomas Nutt killed Dawn Walker, she boldly attempted to warn her, but he blocked her.
Kimberley, 41, described Nutt’s scary demeanour to Dawn and provided images of the harm he had caused her.
However, Nutt cruelly killed Dawn by punching her in the head and strangling her in his Halifax, Nova Scotia, home.
Mum-of-six The Sunday People quoted Kimberley as saying, “He treated Dawn the same way he treated me, but one woman survived and one didn’t. I was fortunate.
“I informed Dawn everything he had done to me and instructed her to ask the police for details about him.
“‘Are you OK?’ was the final message I sent to her. He had her account restricted, so she didn’t respond.
She said: “He was violent and controlling. He gave me no money and I felt like I was in a prison. He was horrible. I couldn’t leave the house.”
He attacked her several times over the ten years they were together
Speaking about his final attack in February 2015, she said: “I went to bed early with a headache. I was woken up by him throwing tablets at me.
“He dragged me out of the bed and started to strangle me. I couldn’t breath, he was pressing hard on my windpipe. I managed to struggle free and run for my life.”
“He started punching me in the head in front of our five-year-old daughter. She screamed and he stopped. If she’d not screamed, I’d be dead now.”
Luckily a neighbour heard the screaming and called the police.
After the attack, he was convicted guilty of assault, and Kimberly and her children were relocated to a safe home.
Nevertheless, Nutt was able to give the children Easter eggs that said, “Did the kids enjoy Easter?”
In order to protect us from him, she said, “I’ve obtained restraining order after restraining order. A psychopath, he is.
Dawn spoke with Kimberley in July 2020, and she advised her to exercise extreme caution when dealing with Nutt.
Then, in August 2020, Dawn claimed that Nutt had attacked her and was later arrested; however, Dawn later abandoned the allegations.
By pleading guilty to manslaughter, Nutt acknowledged killing his wife but maintained his innocence of murder.
However, a jury at Bradford Crown Court returned a unanimous guilty verdict on Wednesday.
