Ashley’s killer gets life in prison

The Canadian Press – | History: 389772

A British man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing a teenager in Vernon, BC, who moved to England last year to meet him.

Essex Police say in a statement that Jack Sepple will spend at least 23 1/2 years in prison for the stabbing death of Ashley Wadsworth.

Police say Wadsworth, 19, was stabbed and strangled during a sustained attack at the 23-year-old’s home on Feb. 1.

Earlier that day, police say two of the young woman’s friends received text messages saying Wadsworth needed help and wanted to leave, followed by messages saying everything was “sorted out,” officials later determined was sent after her death.

Wadsworth met Sepple online and he pleaded guilty to her murder last month.

In a statement shared by police, her mother Christy Gedron says she was a beautiful and smart young woman who was “the backbone of our little family.”
