This is what jealous can do........
A horse groomer was killed after being repeatedly stabbed by her ex boyfriend when she ended their relationship, a jury has heard.
Laura Davies, 21, was attacked near the Essex Horse and Pony Protection Society base in Basildon (England) where she lived and worked.
Her ex-boyfriend, Jordan Taylor, 22, of Basildon, denies murder.
Chelmsford Crown Court was told the attack was so forceful that the knife used was left badly bent.
Prosecutor Peter Gair said: "We say her life was taken by this man during a sustained and brutal attack with a knife. She suffered 80 knife wounds to her body.
"That attack was as a direct result of her telling the defendant that their relationship was over."Whether it was motivated by jealousy or anger of a mixture of both and other emotions, he exacted a terrible revenge on her which caused her to die at the scene." (s:essexbbc)
