Family's relief as couple convicted of murder of Coventry dad
A callous couple were today starting life sentences for the murder of a Coventry dad.
A jury returned guilty verdicts on Dana Webb and her boyfriend Raymond McEnery after a four-week trial.
Peter Wilson, aged 47, who served in the RAF for 16 years, was stabbed to death with a kitchen knife at his flat in Honiley Court, Wood End, in June 2010.
Speaking after yesterday’s verdicts, his only child Sinead Noone said: “I am so happy to have
justice for my dad... he was a lovely man, he always made me smile.”
She added: “I was heartbroken the day I found out he was gone and we have been waiting two years for this day.”
