In the eighth episode of British Murders Season 3, I tell the tragic story of Bill Williamson and his killer Ann Browning.
Bill was 82 when he was murdered by 53-year-old Ann.
He was convinced by her to sell his home and to move in with her.
On the same day the house sale was completed, Bill moved in with Ann and was brutally killed by her.
Ann was sentenced to life imprisonment in August 2011 with a minimum term of 25 years.
