In the third episode of British Murders Season 7, I tell the story of Lee Anstice.
On August 26, 2011, Lee Anstice murdered his wife Tracy by stabbing her with a knife several times.
Lee was in and out of psychiatric care in the months leading up to the murder and would blame voices in his head for the murder despite never mentioning such a thing throughout his time at mental health units.
He was arrested on August 28, 2011, found guilty of Tracy's murder on March 9, 2012, and sentenced to life imprisonment with a 24-year minimum.
Independent investigations company Verita published a report in May 2015 following an independent investigation into the care and treatment of Lee Anstice.
It concluded that the murder of Tracy could have in no way been predicted or prevented.
