A ‘femme fatal’ and her lover’s friend have today been found guilty of murdering a man who was “executed” in a country lane near Doncaster.
A jury returned guilty verdicts that Angela Dowling and Matthew Duffy murdered Alan Easton following a three week trial. Dowling’s lover, Stephen Schofield, had admitted murder at an earlier hearing.
Mr Easton, 50, was beaten, had his throat cut and was stabbed nine times before he was buried alive in a makeshift grave on February 1 last year. He had just got engaged to mum-of-four Dowling, 48, and moved into her home in Windmill Avenue, Conisbrough.
