Sabou will serve a minimum of 23 years after pleading guilty to murder at Lewes crown court on Monday. Judge Christine Laing  praised Adina for having the “decency and courage” to come forward, adding the murder would have “remained unsolved” if she had not.
Adina who returned to her native Romania shortly after, said in an interview, “I didn’t do anything for a while because I was afraid of him and what this might to do our little girls. But I decided to do it because it’s the right thing to do.
“I feel sorry for Valerie’s family and ashamed that my husband caused them so much pain. I hope that this verdict will bring them some comfort,” she said.
