Turkish immigrant Erhan Havaleoglu, 36, stabbed Leighanne Cameron, 29, 10 times in the neck and twice in the back
A former soldier who murdered his estranged life by stabbing her 12 times as their children slept upstairs has been jailed for life.
Erhan Havaleoglu, 35, killed 29-year-old social care worker Leighanne Cameron at their former home in West Lothian.
Their four-year-old daughter and son, aged 18 months, were asleep upstairs at the time of the attack in October 2015.
The High Court in Glasgow had previously heard that the marriage had ended approximately five months earlier.
Although the separation was not amicable Leighanne relied upon Havaleoglu to look after the children so that she could work.
It was just after she arrived home from work that evening that Havaleoglu carried out the brutal and unprovoked assault and knife attack.
Cameron was stabbed 10 times in the neck and twice in the back.
After leaving her dying, Havaleoglu drove to Edinburgh where police believe he ditched the weapon and clothes he was wearing, which were never found.
But a speck of her blood was found on his shoes and on the front door of his flat – which she had never been to.
