A WORCESTER woman has been jailed for the murder of her mother last year.

Janet Mason, who was 69 and from Powick, was stabbed to death by her daughter Jessica Crane in March.

The victim was found at an address in Worcester and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Today, a jury at Worcester Crown Court found Jessica Crane, 50, from Hillside Close, Worcester guilty of murder and she was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum sentence of 12-and-a-half years.

Senior investigating officer, David Knight, from West Mercia Police, said: “This is a sad case which understandably has been devastating for Janet’s family.

“I’m pleased that justice has been done and the family now have some closure.

“They ask that their privacy is respected at this difficult time.”
