Alan Edney Found Guilty, Suspect in the Murder of Kerry Owen
Edney, from Kenilworth Road, Birmingham, “spun a web of elaborate lies” in a bid to cover his tracks, West Mercia Police said. Instead of calling for an ambulance, Det Ch Insp Gerry Smith said he had sought to “cover her body and hide his involvement”. “He later told officers in custody he had been in bed at the time Kerry was killed.” Ms. Owen was tracked down after a dog being walked by a man discovered a pool of blood, and Ms. Owen’s body was found nearby. “Edney cruelly assaulted an innocent woman who loved him and didn’t deserve to die in such an awful way,” said Emily Clewer of the Crown Prosecution Service. “He subjected Kerry Owen to unimaginable violence, leaving her with devastating injuries that ultimately led to her death.”
