A woman who stabbed her boyfriend to death and has been convicted of the crime sent her employer a thank you note for giving her the knife she used for Christmas.
Jeanette Javell, 42, murdered Ingemar Wallin, 49, in their home in Högbo, Sweden, by stabbing and cutting him over 30 times.
Javell used a fillet knife which she had been given as a Christmas present by her employer.
The mother-of-five sent a startlingly jolly letter to her employer to give thanks from prison:
“Thank you for the Christmas gift by the way – it worked!”
Ms. Javell attacked Mr. Wallin, a father-of-two, back in June during the early hours of Midsummer’s Eve, a popular holiday in Sweden.
The couple had met earlier the same year and bought the house together shortly before Mr. Wallin’s murder on June 22nd.
After the stabbing, Javell washed the knife off in the bathroom, and then photographed the dead body with her cell phone.
Two pictures taken at 2:50 and 2:58 AM on the night of the murder were later found on her phone, which she said she took so the police would believe her story.
Javell then took the three of her children who were staying with her during the holiday to relatives in Stockholm, and then drove to a former colleague’s house where she is alleged to have announced “I have killed him, I have killed him,” upon her arrival.
Ms. Javell is currently serving a 15-year prison sentence for murder, but her legal team is currently in the process of appealing the October conviction.
